“Your parents won’t die if you come out” – Bisi Alimi
Nigerian gay rights activist, Bisi Alimi, has asked closeted members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex communities in Nigeria to come out of the closet.
Bisi, who is the first Nigerian to openly declare his sexuality as gay on national television, urged others still in the closet to come out.
According to him, if they open up about their sexuality there parents won’t die, insisting that it’s a lie used to keep them in closet.
Taking to his Twitter handle, he wrote,
“Dear Nigerian LGBTQI+ people, your parents won’t die if you come out; it’s a lie that used to keep you in the closet. You have your life to live; enjoy it.”
