What does “well-being” mean in the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer people in West Africa and Cameroon? For The Queer African Youth Network (QAYN), a queer feminist organization founded in 2010, well-being means self-determination: acting as the agent of your own life; finding the freedom to be yourself, free of danger; gaining the stability to obtain and maintain what you hold dear; and accessing resources to live in dignity. Through a series of innovative activist schools, QAYN is building power with movement leaders across the region, and has quickly grown into a thriving network of LGBTQ organizations, each with strong female leadership, By working together to amplify the voices of LGBTQ people in Cameroon and West Africa, QAYN is building a better future for everyone across the region.
