Utata Collective Movie Saturday at the GALCK Center.18th August 2012
"In August 2012, a collective of Queer Africans living in Kenya met to talk about a radical queer agenda and the potential for collective action across a broad range of queer identified peoples. We have come together as the Utata Collective in support of the objectives and principles of the Queer African Manifesto developed in 2010 in Nairobi. We are not do not seek to be a formalised organisation, we are simply a collective of queer Africans resisting capitalism, imperialism, ethnic chauvinism, patriarchy, persecution and disappearance of multiple queer identities. We are for the building of a self-determined Africa from the body to the nation and we believe, in line with the manifesto, in economic, environmental, social, political, erotic and cultural justice for all. What we want is to build a Left political base in Kenya amongst Queer Africans and build bridges across like minded movements working towards the principles of liberation.
The Utata collective believes that without political consciousness amongst the masses there will be no liberation. To support this process we will be holding movie nights through the Galck center and facilitating discussion among queer Africans to build on all of our knowledge on the journey to liberation."
This Saturday, 18th August 2012 at 2pm, we shall be screening our first in a series of movies.. Karibuni one and all. We shall have discussions and refreshments thereafter..
