A Caine Prize winner, satirist, journalist, African food expert and founding editor of the literary magazine Kwani? Binyavanga is a celebrated Kenyan writer. In 2014 he came out as gay when he chose to make public a lost chapter of his memoir, 'One Day I Will Write About This Place' (2011). The same year, Binyavanga was included in Time magazine’s list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World, with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie citing the way he had “demystified and humanised homosexuality”.
