Nobody needs a mascot. No one should be afraid to the point of wearing a mask to protect their identities. We need to love people and support them for who they are so they can explore, and find new ways of doing things. Innovate, and change how people live. This has been and is still the hope of humanity. Everybody needs love, everybody wants freedom; these are the basic need of humans. It’s something we all have in common. Live, and let others live in peace.
Life as a gay man can be quite difficult in many parts of the world. Especially in an African country like Nigeria where you can spend up to 14 years in a penitentiary if convicted. While social acceptance for gay people is getting better in some countries, some queers aren’t having better luck in other places. Coming out as gay is a long psychological process for many, and sudden for some others.
