a new memory (2020)

‘a new memory’ is a collection of Nigerian Queer and gender marginalized memory, refuting gender and sexuality marginalization as a static aspect of Nigerian culture. Quilting together archival footage and present-day literary, audio, and visual media, it narrates a full and truthful Nigerian history that colonization, queerphobia, and gender marginalization attempted to destroy. While recounting an obscured history, ‘a new memory’ argues that though Nigerian Queer and Trans people have always existed, we deserve a life that is grander than what indigenous Nigerian culture allows, and currently, we are demanding it. ‘a new memory’ serves as a vehicle of revelation, critique, and demand.
