Dakan AfroQueer

    • Society & Culture

It all began with a call for pitches on the AfroQueer social media pages which turned into a full-blown quest to find the filmmaker behind one of the first feature-length LGBTQI films ever made in West Africa.

We found the filmmaker, Mohammed Camara and talked about his film, Dakan.

This episode was reported by SellyThiam and Maimouna Jallow. Produced by Selly Thiam, Maeve Frances and Aida Holly-Nambi, assistant producers were Serubiri Moses and Amelie Bertholete Yengo. Sound editing by Tevin Sudi. Rachel Wamoto is AfroQueer's social media manager.
