Nonjabulo is a culture disruptor who is passionate for adventurous, ethical, and safe sex. STI and HIV new infections would be reduced in their country if fear and shame attached with sexual pleasure would be removed in sex education.
Throughout high school Nonjabulo dreamt of being an architect by day and a pole dancer by night. Wild for a child with conservative parents who grew up in a Christian mission and a country where public sex talk is taboo. As fate would have it, their exotic dancing career never took off but found a studio where they used their voice to advocate for sexual reproductive health and rights for LBQ+ people and women with disabilities. UNESWA FM provided them with a platform to challenge negative cultural practices that remove the right of people from their bodily autonomy.
