Nigerian gay rights activist, Bisi Alimi and his husband, Anthony, are celebrating their sixth wedding anniversary today, November 5, 2022.

To mark the special day, Bisi shared photos from their wedding.

“Six years and counting… Happy anniversary to us.” He wrote.

A while back, Bisi Alimi asked closeted members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex communities in Nigeria to come out of the closet.

Bisi, who is the first Nigerian to openly declare his sexuality as gay on national television, urged others still in the closet to come out.

According to him, if they open up about their sexuality there parents won’t die, insisting that it’s a lie used to keep them in closet.

Taking to his Twitter handle, he wrote,

“Dear Nigerian LGBTQI+ people, your parents won’t die if you come out; it’s a lie that used to keep you in the closet. You have your life to live; enjoy it.”

In other news, Bisi Alimi recently spoke on his strained relationship with his biological mum.

He claimed his mother consistently blackmailed him emotionally till he got tired and decided to give her space. He noted that she’s now trying to establish a relationship with him, but the ship has sailed.

Using his personal experience as example, Bisi Alimi appealed to parents to desist from using emotional blackmail to get the attention of their children.
