AFRA-KENYA is a lesbian, bisexual and queer women’s group that provides spaces for its constituency to safely express themselves and their sexuality through different art forms. AFRA aims to build a strong movement of LBQ women in Kenya and at the same time educate society at large about people’s rights to determine and express their sexual orientation and gender identity. Through art events and peer groups, AFRA supports the healing process of members who have survived violence based on their sexuality and contributes to ending stigma.
