New book alert! The Beautyful Ones Have Just Been Born, the new Gerald Kraak Anthology
More about the book!
The Beautyful Ones Have Just Been Born: Vol. IV: The Gerald Kraak Anthology is out this month from Jacana Media!
The Jacana Literary Foundation and the Other Foundation are thrilled to announce the publication of the fourth volume of The Gerald Kraak Anthology, The Beautyful Ones Have Just Been Born, edited by Otosirieze Obi-Young.
With the prize ceremony linked to Africa Day, the publication of the anthology is tied to the Pride Month of June and the celebrations of the LGBTQI+ community which occur across the globe.
This year’s anthology is filled with inspiring and fearless literary works of fiction, non-fiction and poetry from across Africa.
These stories capture the essence of the African LGBTQI+ community and showcase some of Africa’s most talented writers. The anthology gives a voice to those who would otherwise be marginalised and it insists that differences must be recognised, embraced and celebrated.
The second of the Gerald Kraak Anthologies, As You Like It, received the LAMBDA Literary Award for LGBTQ Anthology Fiction 2019 at a ceremony in New York. A testament to the brave storytellers of Africa, and the impact they have.
The Gerald Kraak Anthology and Prize is made possible by the Jacana Literary Foundation and the Other Foundation.
