Bisi Alimi blasts straight men who claim gay men are coming after them. In a very brutal post, Bisi Alimi went in hard on straight men who claim gay men are coming after them. The gay rights activist was obviously done with the feeling of superiority he felt coming from straight men towards gay men so he took to his Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts to address it.
The 41-year-old wrote: I find it funny that straight men that don’t shower & can only boast of metallic tasting dick are claiming gay men who spent ?& time looking good are coming after them. You should count yourself lucky if we do. Pls stay with ur straight women who love you & your smelly underwear.
After sharing the post, he made sure to warn those who might try to come for him over it. See his warning below:
Bisi Alimi happens to be one of the world’s leading organizers fighting against homophobia, racism, and sexism in Africa and beyond. In 2004, after living with untreated HIV for three years, Alimi, who underwent gay exorcism as a teenager in his native Lagos, became the first Nigerian to come out on public television, in a country that’s socially conservative, especially when it comes to sexuality.
“It was terrifying. I thought it was going to put an end to my career,” Alimi told Global Citizen. “But I was saving myself. At 17, I attempted suicide and I had severe mental health issues. So I thought, either I come out and I kill myself, or I don’t come out and I kill myself. It wasn’t a hero thing, or a courage thing, to me. And I’m not being humble. I wasn’t doing it to be courageous. I just wanted to save myself.”
