Trotro Chronicles Part II: I Discovered Feminism by Guest Contributor Agyakoo

  I was trawling through the entertainment pages of a Ghanaian online news source and saw an interesting headline. I love when a woman slaps me – Captain Planet Ei. Why? I read on.

Are You A Rosebud Or A Rose-In-Bloom? asks Guest Contributor Kalya

I like flowers. They invoke feelings and thoughts of beauty and life; two aspects that wax and wane, not unlike the moon.

Almost Dead

I tried to commit suicide this year. I intentionally overdosed on pain medication and the last thing I remember before I passed out was the jarring pain in my stomach, the bitter taste in my mouth and the sensation of floating out of my body. As I stared down at my round body wearing an […]

‘Dispatch from Rombesia’ by Guest Contributor Lace and Saffron

Eyes closed, swift shallow breaths, racing pulse. My body shuddered and I refused to move, allowing the pleasurable sensations to reverberate throughout my body – it felt good.

‘Bisexual or Confused?’ by Guest Contributor Rakgadi
