Popular Nigerian Gay rights activist, Bisi Alimi, has written a note addressed to straight Nigerian LGBT allies who end up being offensive while trying to show their support for the prescribed community.
Posting his note on his Facebook page, Alimi who recently celebrated his wedding anniversary with his partner addressed a number of misconceptions surrounding homosexuality, while letting those who show support for LGBT causes know that most of their approach causes more harm than good.
In his note titled,’Dear straight allies and friends, we need to talk’, Alimi said that being gay wasn’t a choice and as such, people who supported them shouldn’t say they ‘made a choice’ to be gay because it’s a harmful thing to say, even he knows they mean well.
