Photographer Captures LGBTQ Africans To Shatter Homophobic Stereotypes

Photographer Captures LGBTQ Africans To Shatter Homophobic Stereotypes
- In Nigeria, people can be sentenced to 14 years in prison for homosexual acts and get 10 years for belonging to a 'gay organization,' supporting same-sex marriages or displaying same-sex affection in public. The message reads loud and clear – being LGBTQ is not only considered "un-African," it's considered a crime. In an effort to counter this opinion, queer Nigerian-American photographer Mikael Owunna created his photo series Limitless that features portraits of LGBTQ Africans paired with interviews exploring themes of homophobia, race, African identity, abuse and healing.
