NoStrings is soon to launch a special podcast project that will challenge negative perceptions and speak positively about the issue of homosexuality.

It will encompass different art elements — music, paintings/drawings, poems, etc.

This is a way to show that these are all-important key things that could be used to promote positive messages and change perceptions about the issue of homosexuality in Africa, with Nigeria largely in view.

I am looking for individuals, particularly LGBT persons who will show their art collections, share their music, and read their poems on the podcast. This could also be a good opportunity to discuss the importance of putting voices together to foster acceptance and provide a better understanding of the so-many issues affecting the LGBT community.

Please note: All submitted items must be LGBT-themed, else we may not have anything to do with it.

Let’s do this together…!

Thanks.

  1. How can humans be so mean, cruel to others that are different from them, and feel no remorse ? Yes, I know, they don’t think gay people are humans and must be destroyed like mad dogs and animals.
