A Collaboration With Kito Diaries

A Collaboration With Kito Diaries

So, there’s a silent KDian named Sarah, who is seeking to do some work with KDians. She is Nigerian, an LGBT activist, believes every single person has a right to live life how they see fit as long as it does not hurt anybody else.

Speaking to me, she says:

“I do not believe that is right or acceptable, and that can only change if we humanize the discussion surrounding LGBT people. I want to make people realise that the person you’re damning to hell could very well be that friend who helps you in maths class, or is that friendly person in the workplace. I’m trying to amplify LGBT voices with the little platform I have and it’s been an idea I’ve had since coming across your blog in January. I hope this works fine and that we don’t send all our followers away (lol) but again, we are all about having concrete discussions on lucidlemons.com.”

Sarah is at the helm of a more mainstream blog, lucidlemons.com, and is seeking to help change the narrative of the Nigerian LGBT, through a November segment operating under the hashtag #LGBTTalk. The aim is to help make the Nigerian LGBT more human and visible, seeing as the main reason why it seems so easy for people to abuse and oppress gay people is that they’ve been dehumanized somewhat in media.

So in a mission of collaboration with Kito Diaries, any stories you would like told to a more mainstream followership, which gives a human face to the Nigerian gay community, you could send as an email to lucidlemons@gmail.com with the subject ‘Sarah – LGBTTalk’. You may also check out the site lucidlemons.com.

And Ronnie Phoenix, if you’re reading this, Sarah would like to interview you on what it’s like to identify as both Nigerian and Transgender, while still living in Nigeria. Kindly reach out to her via the abovementioned email address.

PS: Sarah’s apparently a fan of a bunch of KDians. She says:

“…Dennis Macaulay, JustJames, even Sinnex, Teflondon, Max and Tiercel Clarion. LOL! I love your blog so much that I think I already know these people!”
