Daniel Kunke, a 19-year old Nigerian college student, speaks about why he decided to start an LGBT-inclusive clothing brand. In an interview with NoStringsNG, the teenager, who is currently studying mass communications at Yaba College of Technology in Lagos, says his aim is to ensure that everyone is “equally represented” by making sure that “there’s something available for everyone.” “I am a janitor, brand owner and I write during my bored times. I am the founder of Kunke’s Apparel, a new Lagos-based clothing line focused on making urban wears that can be worn to major occasions, especially in Lagos where we have all the altè and urbane hangouts and locations.” [Editor’s note: “altè” is a Nigerian term meaning “alternative” and referring to a style of music, art, and fashion that emphasizes free expression and individuality.]
