She Called Me Woman


Edited by Azeenarh Mohammed, Chitra Nagarajan and Rafeeat Aliyu

This stirring and intimate collection brings together 25 first hand accounts to paint a vivid portrait of what it means to be a queer Nigerian woman. These brave and beautifully-told stories of resistance and resilience reveal the realities of a community that will no longer be invisible. From the joy and excitement of first love, the agony of lost love and betrayal, memories of childhood games to addiction and suicide, She Called Me Woman shows us how Nigeria’s queer woman, in all their multitudes, attempt to build a life together.
