Q: Do you currently feel represented in the media and in the world around you?
Yasmin: No, not at all. I’ve never seen myself represented, which is why I got into activism, just to be my own representation because I got tired of waiting for other people to do it for me. There are not a lot of black asexual women out there in the media or in any kind of public-facing work, so I thought that I would try and fill the void.
Q: What changes would you like to see for the queer community in the next 10-15 years?
Yasmin: I would like to see different identities taught about in schools. I think most countries still need to work on that. I’d love to see it legally normalised, being ideologically, personally, socially normalised and accepted, and I would like to see it represented in a way that is true to life and fair and diverse.
