My name is Kenne. This is not a personal blog and was somehow intended to be but somehow never became. Since its inception, this blog has come to cover issues and topics as wide ranging as queer Africa to youth and the political in Kenya.
I am still a young restless student of queer, a subject/topic/theory that astounds me and I would very much like to exhaust it before it exhausts me-it will never exhaust me and I will never exhaust it.
I am young, restless and my life revolves around the socio-political and economic hegemonies that make it so hard for queers to inhabit spaces, any spaces, comfortably. I read a lot, if you haven’t figured that out yet.
Criticism (informed), comments and indifference (typed though) are very much welcome in the comment section after each post but if you want to write a whole book about it, don’t forget to cite my work, it gets me readers. I love English, hate that Kiswahili is negated to mean non-western education/ideals (whatever) and believe that indigenous languages, though vital, shouldn’t be used to justify ‘generic African-ness’. Thanks for reading this.
