Marylize Biubwa is a 30 year old black queer intersectional feminist and activist. Her
activism is on social justice with a deliberate gender bias.
Her feminism, as indicated above
is intersectional in nature to allow for championing for the rights of all humans. Her
activism and feminism is inspired by life experiences and day to day events that make life.
As a rape survivor, her motivation to activism and feminism is to see a world where
women are free to express and explore their sexuality and femininity without being
sexually objectified, for women to have a voice and choice over their bodies(bodily
autonomy), and for consent to be a bare minimum when it comes to female interactions
with males. Her ideal world is a world where a level ground is maintained for all genders,
sexual orientations and identities to ever exist under the sun.
As a queer lesbian womxn, other than seeing homosexuality decriminalized in Kenya, her
activism and feminism is to see a world where human beings can live out their lives fully
without the worry of being ostracized and abused because of their queerness. To see a
world that embraces and respects diversity as it should be.
Her work is, aside from working with partners, allys and different CSOs, mainly on social
media which provides a suitable crowd to Propel the agenda of acquiring and obtaining
information. To demystify myths about women and their sexuality and myths around
persons of the LGBTIQGNC+ community. Platforms she often uses are Facebook (Biubwa
Marylize), Twitter (@Queerly_So), IG (marylize_biubwa) and YouTube as (Marylize
Biubwa) . In this age and time, she solidly believes cordiality is the secret power that social
media gives everyone a chance at communication. And if we can communicate then why
not share information, learn and become better humans?
