Homosexuality was not abhorred in Africa, stop decolonizing Africa – [Bisi Alimi]

One of the members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning [LGBTQ] Bisi Alimi, who is a gay rights activist says homosexuality wasn’t a criminal offense in Africa.

According to the Tweet he posted, he’s clearly directing this to the colonizers of Africa.

He said that there was no African who was a Christian before they (the colonizers) colonized them. Bisi also mentioned that homosexuality was not an offense in Africa, but the colonizers took that away and made it seem like an abomination.

The gay rights activist termed all these as “decolonizing”. “You can’t demand decolinising Africa and be homophobic at same time”. Read his full Tweet below:

History 101; not one single African was a Christian before encounter with the colonisers. Homosexuality was not a criminal offence in Africa before the colonisers came. You can’t demand decolinising Africa and be homophobic at same time. Choose a side.
