About this Event

Aderonke Apata is a Nigerian LGBTIQ activist and former asylum seeker who was granted right in the UK to remain after a 13-year battle.

Aderonke is the founder of African Rainbow Family, a group that supports LGBTIQ asylum seekers and people of African heritage in UK

She also started Manchester Migrant Solidarity, a group that brings together all migrants to provide mutual support and build a powerful political voice against the systematic mistreatment of migrants in the UK.

Since April 2020, both Manchester Migrant Solidarity and African Rainbow Family have been providing members with vital necessities such as food and communication technology during the pandemic to support their mental, physical, and social wellbeing.

Happening as part of the Gender in World Politics module, Aderonke Apata’s talk is open to anyone who would like to learn more about how gender, sexuality, and race intersect with migration as well as activist struggles against the injustices of the UK border regime.
