Adejoke Tugbiyele's art tackles #homophobia: "The reality of death, torture, pain, jealousy, fear is so real among many LGBTQ Africans. Many people don’t realise that the coming-out experience is torture enough. My work speaks to this inner struggle, but also to how the body navigates burdens of family, religion and the state. In South Africa, the activist and photographer @muholizanele has sacrificed so much and worked hard to show how real the pain is for lesbians who endure abuse in the form of “corrective rape”. This happens in Nigeria as well but few women speak up about it. Until Nigeria’s anti-gay law is eliminated, it will continue to motivate my work." (In an interview for @mailandguardian)
