This installation is a documentary photography series that focuses on the lives and experiences of 50 LGBTQ African immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers in North America, Europe and the Caribbean.

It is a project of Pittsburgh-based Nigerian American multimedia artist Mikael Owunna (pictured).

Photographed over 6 years in 10 countries, this work is in conversation with precolonial African notions of LGBTQ people as the gatekeepers, shamans and healers of their communities and combats contemporary ideas that it is “un-African” to be LGBTQ.
