Granta with Bisi Alimi
6 December 2016 @ 12:00 am
Granta Magazine and the Bisi Alimi Foundation invite you to a performance of ‚ÄòAfrica‚Äôs Future Has No Space for Stupid Black Men‚Äô by Pwaangulongii Dauod performed by Bisi Alimi.
The reading will be followed by a discussion on literature and the persecution of LGBT people in Nigeria.
Pwaangulonii Dauod, writing under a pseudonym, delivers a passionate elegy for his friend C-Boy. The essay gives a frank portrayal of the experience for LGBT people in Nigeria, where the maximum penalty for ‚Äòsame-sex sexual activity‚Äô is fourteen years‚Äô imprisonment. Bisi Alimi, a Nigerian gay rights activist forced to seek asylum in the UK in 2004, will perform the essay.
In association with the Bisi Alimi Foundation.
