Nick Hadiwa Mwaluko’s play _WAAFRIKA. 1992. Kenya. Two Women Fall in Love_ A global movement to end female genital mutilation, a human rights violation of extreme complexity and tenacity, needs stunning, original art like Nick Mwaluko's WAAFRIKA to open new avenues of understanding. WAAFRIKA, by illuminating the background to the custom in inflexible gender roles and sexual norms, is probably the issue's first lesbian play with a transgender impulse. As Harvard's Tracie Jones attests, "WAAFRIKA will certainly dispel the idea that same-sex relationships are foreign to Africa," and in doing so, it suggests that broader sexualities and identities are possible..
