London folk, don’t miss The Togetherness Festival on June 17th, where Kimwei will be running her latest workshop, entitled “Do You See Me?”
We all have the desire to be fully accepted, yet being truly understood is rare. Why is this? When have we been asked to decide between inclusion and self-realization? When has it seemed necessary to go against our true nature in order to be loved?

Thrilled to be back on BBC Radio Devon with Laura James. After so many have showed an interested in my Van Vlogs I decided to do a van and digital nomad series this time. Enjoy 🙂
Since May, the Nothing’s Binary project has grown to the point that it needs its own dedicated home in cyberspace. Find it at nothingsbinary.com
I’m thrilled that what started off as me writing one song about being non-binary and recording it with Billie Bottle, has expanded to this point now. It’s included performances, hosting events and running workshops, by myself or with Billie too. I’ve also spoken on BBC Radio Devon, and Beyond The Binary magazine. I’m grateful for the opportunities to contribute to the breaking down of gender stereotyping and celebrating all genders. Long may it continue.
Kimwei & Billie play “Nothing’s Binary” and new track “Spell Out Your Name” at Exeter Street Arts Festival
Billie and I had such a great time playing at Exeter Street Arts Festival at the weekend. Thanks to all those who came, and who stayed on to chat with us too. We’re cooking up more so stay tuned if you’re up for a Nothing’s Binary gathering in the near future.
This week I’m talking about gender, being non-binary and gender stereotyping in a series of Pause For Thoughts for Laura James’ Early Show on BBC Radio Devon. There are 7 in total, so stay tuned.
Billy and I had a wonderful time at Queer Spirit Festival doing a workshop on “The Healing Power Of Being Seen As We Truly Are”. It was a huge success and already we’re being asked to do more, so watch this space!
Great news! Billy and I will be at Queer Spirit for this workshop and will play a few songs to boot. Click here for more info.
The video of my song “Nothing’s Binary” has reached over 6K in views and 100 shares on Facebook in less than a week. This vlog responds to the wonderful reception Nothing’s Binary has had, and to Piers Morgan on This Morning (16.05.2017) on the topic of gender. Please keep sharing the Nothing’s Binary video, also available on Youtube.
SO happy that the magnificent Billy Bottle agreed to sing this song with me. They were/are fantastic on every level, and I’m very proud to present this video we created to co-incide with Exeter Pride.
Our idea was to show us dressed the most masculine and feminine we both tend to dress. We’d love to make a collaborative video for this song with more people, in time for International Non-Binary Day on July 14th. Stay tuned.
The song is about being non-binary, but also celebrating LGTBQ as a whole, this goes out to anyone who seeks to be seen for who they truly are. When we accept each other, we love each other, and when we love each other we change the world. So please, please share this video with someone who truly sees you / someone you truly see/ someone else. Billy and I would love it if you did.
