One of my biggest takeaway’s from last week’s conference, other than all the incredible things I learnt from activists all over their world, is this very image.
While the quote speaks for itself, in the background is one of the kangas part of the To Revolutionary Type Love project. “As implied by its name, the project is a toast to all types of (Queer) revolutionary acts of love, both past and present, so that the project itself essentially becomes an act of love and celebration through the spectrum of the LGBTQIA+. Kawira Mwirichia is the brainchild behind #TRTL. The project uniquely illustrates rainbow love on kangas* using imagery and symbols unique to the triumphs of the queer movement in each country. In addition, love quotes collected from the Kenyan queer community are appropriately matched to each country’s kanga.” In all the excitement I didn’t get an image of the other kangas but Kawira has all the images, descriptions and also sells these on https://torevolutionarytypelove.com/shop
I’ve put my experiences of this conference in the #recon2019 highlight so feel free to peruse as you please ❤️
