I am a feminist and I define not only my feminism but my identity. I ask questions,I cross boundaries,break binaries and speak out against all forms of injustices.I am a journalist, a pacifist and a human rights defender. I identify as a transgender person. I refuse to benefit and fit in’ a society, culture and systems which dehumanises me and my mothers, frowns upon my sisters and oppresses my daughters.
I believe a revolution begins with a question, so i keep questioning things,challenging patriarchy and all forms of oppressive power that perpetuates violations and inequalities. I speak out, stand up and refuse to conform to norms that exacerbate our subjugation and that of others…Never again!
I was one of the winners of the Go visible Award (2012) presented by the European Parliament’s Intergroup on LGBT rights. This was in recognition of the ‘Spread Love not Hate campaign’ i spearheaded in Zimbabwe working with the LGBT community. religious leaders,young women’s groups, the media and peace building organisations.
