About ‘Tuli Mukwano’
Carved with a chainsaw from a giant pine log, Leilah Babirye’s ‘Tuli Mukwano’ is a dual portrait of two figures existing outside the confines of gender binaries. The title, which translates to “We are in Love” in Swahili, stands as a call for the public recognition of LGBTQIA people persecuted throughout the world, from Babirye’s native Uganda to local communities within the United States.
