“Every Nigerian deserves the same right as every other Nigerian, irrespective of class, sex, race, gender identity or sexual orientation. Consensual adults do not deserve to have their love criminalized.” Yemisi Ilesanmi -Freedom To Love For All: Homosexuality is not Un-African' #Idahot2016 #Idahobit

"Africa is very diverse, it is not a monoculture. Every ethnicity within African society has its own peculiar culture, therefore it is wrong to assume that a singular action is Un-African". Excerpts from 'Freedom To Love For All: Homosexuality is not Un-African"

"Sodomy law is a foreign import; it is a relic from the colonial era which former British colonies inherited. The law, like most old colonial British laws, had a very high religious influence, the name of the law itself points to its biblical origin. Britain has since repealed sodomy laws in its homeland. Unfortunately Nigeria and many other African countries still cling to this antiquated law and many now think it is an original, home-grown, African law." ‪ #IDAHOT2016   #IDAHOBIT

Some of us know we are.
Some of us don't believe we are.
Some of us let society tell us otherwise.
Beauty comes in different colours, shapes and sizes.
Baby, You Are Beautiful.

"I am Proudly African and I am mystified whenever I am accused of "promoting and defending European sexual perversity" (whatever that means). In fact from various historical paintings on Ancient Africans walls, our ancestors enjoyed homosexual relationships, affection and love. This was one reason why colonial administrators immediately imported sodomy laws into our constitutions; they imported homophobia because they thought our free loving ancestors were barbarians who freely indulged in same-sex loving." ‪ #Idahot2016 #Idahobit

I AM COMING OUT!
I am coming out, out of my shell
Long under the influence of your spells
Locked away in your antique culture cell
Where no one could hear me yell
I had screamed all in vain
Only I could feel the pain
It is time to break the chains
The ghosts of the past I must slain
Weighed down by societal shackles
Banging to be out, proud and sparkle

I am coming out, out of my shell
Doing away with your lying shields
It is unnatural, you scream
You will burn in hell, you preach
Fires and brimstones you rake
From your societal grip I break
In angry defense the truth I seek
To be free, to be me, I must speak
Coming out, head high, sets me free
I am proud, out and ready to peak

I am coming out, out of my shell
Proud to be out, I am ready to excel
Cultural lies and crumbs I was spooned
Like a caterpillar so long cocooned
I burst out as a beautiful butterfly wrings
Spreading my colorful rainbow wings
Shamed I might flounder and saunter
I will rise above slanders and be a flaunter
From the sidelines I am no longer peeping
Now I take center stage as I burst out singing

Baby, You Are Beautiful.
What makes you beautiful is Not
Because you don’t know you are beautiful,
But because you simply are.
