NYAC S3 E3: Yes, Your Ancestors' Erotics
Let’s talk about sex, baby! On this episode, we are joined by public intellectual Keguro (@Keguro_) as we explore sex, sexuality and gender using the knowledge of how our ancestors viewed and practiced the erotics as the main point of reference. We ask ourselves, what informs our idea of sexuality and gender? How do our ancestors’s views and practiceof the erotics differ from those of the west? How do they differ from contemporary African practices of the erotics? Who are the people taken seriously as those who have knowledge about sexuality and gender? How should our knowledge of how our ancestors view and practice erotics inform our present day, especially how we relate to and be in community with gender and sexual minorities?
