Limitless Africans is a documentary photography series that focuses on the lives and experiences of 50 LGBTQ African immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers in North America, Europe, and the Caribbean. Photographed over 6 years in 10 countries, this work is in conversation with precolonial African notions of LGBTQ people as the gatekeepers, shamans, and healers of their communities and combats contemporary ideas that it is “un-African” to be LGBTQ. Limitless Africans was released as a published monograph in October 2019.
