In Yoruba and other African spiritual traditions, possession by spirits is connected to the people’s existence. When possessed, no matter the gender, one is regarded as a “bride” of the deity. Guided by the insight and work of local Black Queer scholars, artists, and activists, this panel we examine historical and contemporary Black queer figures, profiles, and practices of stewarding cultural uprisings. We will discuss the beliefs that drive their passion and commitment to liberation and the ways they are building capacity, connections, and community.
