QueerCity Podcast

ABOUT THIS PODCAST

Queercity media and productions is a Nigerian community-based media organization, with the sole mission of producing stories and documenting times of Queer Lives in West Africa. Otherwise known as Queercity, employs the art of storytelling through various easily consumable media like posters, graphics, slides, podcasts, films, documentaries, audio-docu-series, etc. Kicked off operations in 2018 as a podcast, in our first three years of existence, we have been able to hit major historic milestones with our productions and events. Few of which include our first event ever “Bodies Around Olumo  Abeokuta ’19” which is Nigeria’s first openly LGBT open mic event, and Nigeria’s first openly Queer creatives event. Queercity which was founded by Olaide Kayode Timileyin in Lagos, Nigeria on the 6th of April, 2018 has not just grown from being a podcast, Queercity is now a Household name in Nigerian Creatives/activism spheres, as its past volunteers are now doing very well in their new spaces.
