Both African migration and queer Africa are loaded with negative stereotypes in global discourse, including misunderstandings on the interconnected reasons why marginalised people migrate. In Senegal, the open-endedness of both migration and of queerness has the possibility to create surprising networks and collaborations between queer Senegalese around the world, offering directions for a different kind of queer activism.
