Busy Being Black means we refuse to let wherever we come from define where or how far we will go in life. This is just one of the lessons I was reminded of in my conversation with Bisi Alimi, the activist and angelic troublemaker behind the Bisi Alimi Foundation. Bisi was born in Lagos in 1975 and came to international attention when he became the first ever person to come out on Nigerian television. His life since has been a veritable whirlwind, but as I learned in our conversation, the very moments that might have broken others became the moments in which he found his strength, an ability he believes lies within all of us.
Busy Being Black is a podcast exploring how we thrive in the fullness of our queer Black lives.
