Dear Friends,

 

It is with deep sorrow that we inform you of the tragic death of our dear friend Kawira Mwirichia Sheila.

 

Kawira, who centered her life’s work on rights and liberties of expression, touched the lives of many through her work as an artist and activist. One of her most notable creations, "To the Revolutionary Type Love (TRTL)" (now "@Kanga Pride"), has been showcased the world over. It features 195 kanga designs affirming LGBTQ+ persons, celebrating them and claiming their history. This work is a testament to her dreams of freedom for all LGBTQ+ folk. (There are conversations underway by feminist friends to continue, archive and preserve Kawira's work).

 

We would like to honor Kawira by pledging to support costs for her funeral. Towards this, any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

The funeral is set for Tuesday, 10th November 2020 at the Langata Cemetery. 

An Update.11th November 2020.
