 “Pressure almost made us get married to women just to please everyone but ourselves,” Nigerian gay lovers share emotional post. 


As it’s our third Val together, I thought I’d share how far we’ve come as two Gay Nigerian men in love......with the hope that some Queer kid reading from Africa or anywhere around the world can aspire to live free someday. .

I still remember how during our first Val in 2018, we were living secretly in love, couldn’t share our love with family or strangers as we cared so much about what people would say...which led us to prioritise the opinions of friends, families & strangers over our happiness. .
.
We felt strongly for each other but never saw us living openly in our true authentic selves even though we were based in a country that legalised homosexuality.
It’s actually crazy saying this now but inorder to stop people from talking(and our families from asking too many questions), we almost gave into pressure & made plans to get married to women just to please everyone but ourselves. 😭 .
This unfortunately is the sad reality of many LGBT Africans both in Africa and the West. .
.

Fast forward months later, I felt ready to live my truth, to share my story.....so I came out of the closet and started living free. A year later, he felt ready and came out to his family too...I was so shocked as we never spoke about it the day it happened. However that was an experience I could relate to...life just happens and you make some big decisions when you feel ready to. .
.

Coming out made him feel so happy and I was incredibly glad for him too...also, I was excited for the both of us and our future together. .
.
If someone told me years ago(when I was still laughing at homophobic jokes), I’ll be posting this picture today, I’d simply laugh at them and walk away. .
I’m so grateful for our growth together as well as our privilege to be in a country where we can express ourselves and be US. .
.

Really want to send a message to every Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender or Queer African reading this to know that your feelings are valid, being who you are isn’t a sin and someday you too will have the opportunity to live your truth. .

Sending lots of love & wishing you a very Happy Valentine’s Day❤️
