What Sex Education season three gets right about the Nigerian queer experience (Vincent Desmond, GQ) From the article: “Freedom to be oneself and exist freely and authentically is universally understood among queer people regardless of the society they are raised in. On a larger scale, it shows the resilience of LGBTQIA+ Nigerians, who are working hard to create safe spaces for themselves in a country that makes it hard for them to do so, and on a smaller scale, it is a joy to watch Eric exist, albeit briefly, surrounded by people he shares so much with at this special intersection of being queer and Nigerian.”
“ADHD Babes: ADHD Babes is a community group for Black Women and Black Non-Binary people with ADHD. We create safe spaces for us to flourish and live our lives to their greatest potential. We aim to empower people with community, tools, learning and healing spaces to redefine ADHD, tackle its difficulties and utilise its strengths. We aim to create a society that embraces neurodiversity. We aim to raise awareness and educate people on the truth and reality of how ADHD affects neurodiverse people, and how best to support them.”
