“I Am A Girl.” Bobrisky answers the question about Her Gender Identity

“I Am A Girl.” Bobrisky answers the question about Her Gender Identity

For a long time, Nigerians have had one collective question on their minds: is Bobrisky female or simply a male who loves to cross-dress? In fact, when writer Elnathan John took to twitter to profess his admiration for the socialite over her courage in daring to live her truth in the face of Nigeria’s homophobia, there were those who came to his comments to query him over his use of the feminine pronoun to qualify Bobrisky.

The question was: Has Bobrisky identified as a woman?

Well now she has.

“A lot of you have been asking me, ‘Bobrisky, are you a girl or a guy… Do you use the female toilet or you use the male toilet?’ Of course I use the female toilet because I am a girl,” she declares in a video posted on instagram. “Some others ask me, ‘Bobrisky, when you fill forms, do you fill the female or male?’ Of course I fill female. Even at the airport, a guy cannot search me. It has to be a girl.”

Well, that’s that. So can we please drop our transphobia and address Bobrisky according to her preferred gender identity.

Check the video out below.
