‘I Want To Own My Story.’ – Bisi Alimi

‘I Want To Own My Story.’ – Bisi Alimi

celebs 53In December last year, Bisi Alimi joined other global LGBT activists to speak at the New York City public library to mark 2014 Human Rights. His talk titled “My name is Bisi Alimi and I am not a victim” has been adjudged as one of the most moving talks of the day.

The talk was released a couple of days ago, and because I believe his talk will help support others, mostly Africa LGBT people who might be struggling with the challenges they are facing, I had to share.

Check out the video of Bisi’s talk below.

        DM, you accuse me sometime of not seeing sarcasm in a comment. If the giggle I put at the end of that statement didn’t point out that I was joking, I font know what else to do except bare my mind literally for you.

      Pete, your #Nohomo references has to stop. It’s considered offensive here. You can love BISI platonically without including that hash tag…

    Must you guys fuss on evry single comment? even at a point when we should be meditating.
    i think Bisi was just lucky. there are many Nigerians who can still sum up the efontry to out demselves,bt den the point still remains “will they be able to survive it? will the rescuers come to his aid early enuf before he ends up in the hands of homophobes?
    it doesnt end in coming out to the whole world, bt instead on what happens as soon as you back the camera.
