Out, Proud and African
South African Writer and Researcher, Jamil F. Khan.
He currently enrolled for a PhD in Critical Diversity Studies at the University of the Witwatersrand. His research focuses on the histories and lived experiences of creolised people (classified as coloured) in South Africa and more broadly explores power dynamics between oppressed groups in a white supremacist world order. He considers his work to be a bridge between academic and artistic spaces to give expression to the historic tradition of storytelling which is too often trivialised and dismissed. He is currently writing a socio-political memoir due for release in 2020.
This is his coming out story.
