In 2013, the Nest Collective travelled across Kenya, recording over 250 personal accounts of persons identifying as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex in Kenya. This book - in this second edition, updated with new narratives collected in 2018 - presents a selection from the resulting archive in an attempt to explore the consciousness, ambition and expression of many queer Kenyans in their daily interactions with family, friends, schools, workplace, religion and ideas of the future, and in diverse social contexts in Kenya. Through these stories, the self-representing queer Kenyan grants the reader permission to explore private and intimate worlds-where the vagaries of queer publicness, silence, intimacy, militancy and love happen.
