Work This Pussy by Juliana Ayeni Stevens at Talawa Firsts 2021


Talawa Firsts: Thursday 15th July 2021

Meet Katherine aka Kitz, she’s 100% real … well that’s what she thinks! Kitz is a Black British Nigerian who’s proud to be from Essex and isn’t afraid to talk candidly about her sexuality, her childhood, her culture and her faith. After years of suppressing her sexual identity she's on a path to tackle those cultural, social and religious conditions to finally face who she really is. But how real is her life?

My shit ain’t quite “together, together” but then again who’s life is really that together?! So here’s me, a 30-something (I’ll keep y’all guessing my age) Black-British Nigerian queer woman.....actually let’s be real, this chick loves pussy no dicks round here!"
