“Bias against queer women in Nigeria is rooted in deeply held cultural and religious values”

It’s quite appalling that most of the things an average Nigerian stands against are based on these values. Cultural values that are rather archaic. Religious values that we would only bring up to suit ourselves.

I get the stares sometimes, on the days when I have decided that I’d rather be dressed as only a man would.

To be honest, like Joan and Doreen said in one of the podcasts, I congratulate lesbians. Moreso, those that have chosen to fuck it all and express themselves in a country like Nigeria. If only I had that nerve in me. That particular nerve.

Girl, I am rooting for you and your partner(s). May you find the peace/rest that you seek

This is a beautiful read and very relatable. Like I could feel the pain you felt while you wrote this.
