A PanAfricanist Queer Womanist Collective

Sexual Rights Centre Visual Arts Project

The Sexual Rights Centre is a human rights advocacy organisation based in Bulawayo. They work directly with sex workers and members of the  LGBTI community. They are unapologetic about their commitment to human rights for every Zimbabwean and their conviction that sexual rights are integral to affirming all human rights.
Every two weeks they organise a “creative space”. The idea behind the “creative space” is for people to have fun, and express themselves through various forms of expression. These works were inspired by a desire to have people mark their space. The prevailing theme was ‘Who Am I?’ and people worked in small groups to paint who they were.
As an organisation the Sexual Rights Centre believes in diversity and inclusivity.  Therefore they encourage people to use as many different forms of expression as possible to celebrate themselves. These paintings will remain on the walls of the Sexual Rights Centre as a testimony to the power of sex workers and the importance of their voices.
