Episode 06 – House of Guramayle – Tikur Engeda

House of Guramayle is a collaborative intersectional platform created by exiled Ethiopian activists based around the world. This is one of 12 stories in their new book, Tikur Engeda about coming to terms with one’s sexuality in a country that does not accept you for who you are.

I am a lawyer, a brother, a son, a friend, a neighbor, a confidant, a student of life and I am Kenyan. Became a human rights activist so suddenly sometimes I ask myself if this really is something I wanted. But I have come to embrace it. I have come to realize that I like what I do. That on some level, what I do makes life easier for someone and hopefully, eventually, for myself…Probably the best way to describe me is in the words of Winston Churchill, I am a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.
