Nigerian born UK-based Gay right activist Bisi Alimi has taken to his social media page to continue his advocacy for the African society to become receptive of homosexuality and gender orientation.
In a recent post of his, he said No African was a Christian until after colonisation, and that Homosexuality wasn’t a criminal offence in Africa until after colonisation.
In essence, homosexuality was a thing in African society before colonization. The gay rights activist added that one cannot demand the decolonization of Africa while also being against homosexuality.
Bisi Alimi wrote:
History 101; not one single African was a Christian before encounter with the colonisers. Homosexuality was not a criminal offence in Africa before the colonisers came. You can’t demand decolinising Africa and be homophobic at same time. Choose a side.
