It’s 29 days to gay rights activist, Bisi Alimi’s wedding to his fiance/fiancee, Anthony, and he has started by sharing ’30 things to be grateful for’. He started yesterday.

The couple sealed their marriage legally when they went to the registry on June this year. Today, he shared  a throwback photo of his interview with Funmi Iyanda when he came out as gay. Read below…

“Day 2 of 30 days to my wedding of 30 things to be grateful of. On the 6th October 2004, I sat on that sofa with Funmi Iyanda and I came out. She gave me the opportunity in no patronising nor condensing way to tell my story. On that day I learnt the power of truth and authenticity. I learnt that life is what you make of it. I was a 29years old boy, just graduating from university with a prominent role in ‘Roses and Thorns’ a soap series on Galaxy Television. I lost everything after coming, but I gained today. Life was preparing for a journey beyond my expectations. In 29 days, I will say I do to a man I have come to find solace in his arms. #gaymarriage #30daysofthankfulness #newdawnwithfunmiiyanda #comingout #lgbtcomingout #authenticity #ido”
