OluTimehin Adegbeye on protecting your peace
In the last episode of Season 3, we're joined by the incredible OluTimehin Adegbeye, a Nigerian writer, speaker, and founder of Quietly Queer. OluTimehin discusses parenting in a queer relationship in Nigeria, compassion-focussed activism, and protecting your peace. Reading a letter that she wrote at 25 to herself aged 16, OluTimehin reflects on what it means to accept yourself as existing both within and beyond your body, how to find self love in oppressive environments, and what it means to sometimes (just sometimes) divest yourself from the fight.Growing up with gal-dem is taking a short break as we prepare for Season 4.
