Khamr: The Makings of a Waterslams by Jamil F Khan

‘[Khan] has documented an important, spirit-healing story; a beautiful undoing of some of the unspeakable violence of Black, queer erasure from history.’ – Barbara Boswell, Associate Professor of English, UCT

‘When I read this book I felt less alone, I felt seen in all my complexities and hidden histories.’ – Letlhogonolo Mokgoroane, co-founder of The Cheeky Natives

Khamr is a coming-of-age story, where Khan tells the story of his grappling with classism, colourism and homophobia in a middle-class Cape Town, ‘Coloured’ community, where appearances are everything.

Jamil F Khan is a Critical Diversity Studies PhD candidate, researcher, author, columnist and poet.

Lives of Great Men: A Memoir by Chiké Frankie Edozien

LAMBDA Literary Award for Gay Memoir, 2020

In this luminous book, we are exposed to a universe of important but untold stories: the queer African is brought out of the shade of society’s bigotry and thrust into the light. Emotional, raw and unflinchingly honest, Edozien is a voice for change against hate and discrimination.

Chiké Frankie Edozien is a Nigerian-American writer and journalist, and is the New York University Accra Director. He directed the New York University Journalism Institute’s Ghana-based Reporting Africa program from 2008 to 2019.
