James Mbuthia Ndung’u (Ramah Amandla) is a junior student at Duke University pursuing Feminist Studies and International Comparative Studies on the pre-law track. They are a Queer non-binary artist from Nairobi, Kenya who hopes to impact the world through storytelling and activism. Accordingly, Mbuthia is a former founding Director of Recruitment, which involved collecting the stories of Queer Africans across the continent and diaspora and chairing education and advocacy workshops alongside QAN’s capable team.
Queer African Network, for me, represents succinctly all that I envision to do with my life: bridging people, continents, times, and stories together on one platform to empower all TLGBIQ+ people and I (was) so excited to about my role and vision.
On the side, Mbuthia loves to listen, read, write and sing. Be sure to check out their spotlight on our page soon.

Editor’s Note: Ramah was a former member of the team and supported our efforts to make QAN what it is now. In their role as Director of Amandla, they worked to collect stories from the continent and diaspora that have been published under Amandla. They also ran some of QAN's book club sessions.
