#HowIResist Campaign 22

The LGBT community is not a danger. It’s not a threat. They’re not saints and they’re not sinners. They’re a bunch of people no different from you, from everywhere and anywhere, who just want to love themselves consensually and are asking to be left the FUCK ALONE!

How hard is that?

 

#HowIResist

If you do, people will talk. If you don’t do, people will talk.

So what do I do?

I resist by being fabulously me, pink shorts, flowing weaves and everything. I sashay out of that closet with a nice Beyoncé song playing in the background, my eyes on the people who matter to me, my back to those who can’t deal with my colours.

PS: The knife is for y’all homophobic jerks, ‘cos this bitch is done being the victim. – Façade

 

#HowIResist

I am in love with a woman, and I try as much as I can to talk about it. I am still that responsible woman I was, before I fell in love with a woman. This, in a way, proves a point that my sexuality has nothing to do with my personality, and the way I adore my relationship makes people see that same-sex relationships are as valid as heterosexual relationships. That there is no definition of normalcy because the majority of the population does a particular thing. – Onugbo

 

#HowIResist

I resist by refusing to associate with homophobia, lest the hate contaminate my being. It is an effort each day to dig deep inside me for all the reasons why I’m deserving. And I can only achieve that in an environment of love.

Loving myself is key, The only way for me to be happy. – Seun

 

#HowIResist

I resist by being the truest person I can be, owning my shit, knowing I have a few friends that I love and who love me back for who I am. I resist by being the boss bitch that I am… And if you don’t like it, you leave and stay the fuck away from me. – Lorde

 

#HowIResist

I resist by advocating for and giving proper sensitization about the LGBT community, in clearing myths and misconceptions. By teaching that love is a beautiful thing that knows no gender.

I resist by stating my stand as a gay man while achieving the heights anybody can.

I resist by refusing to conform to expectations of society, religion and cultural beliefs. – Koksy
