Bolu Okupe, the son of a former presidential aide, Doyin Okupe has revealed that the son of another high profile politician in the country is soon to come out as gay.
Recall that a reporter from The PUNCH question Bolu earlier this year, see question below:
Your dad, in two separate Facebook posts, expressed strong belief that you would reconsider your sexual orientation as a gay someday. What is your view on this?
‘Sexual orientation is not something that one can “reconsider”. This is the way I am and it is the way I have always been and will always be. I and many others in the LGBTQ (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer) community were born the way we are, many may not understand this but stop and think for a second, why would we intentionally choose this lifestyle when we know that we will be ridiculed and shamed by society? I do hope that one day we can, as Nigerians and Africans, get to the point where we love and accept each other regardless of things such as sexual orientation.’
While addressing Nigerians in the video that he posted on his YouTube platform on Saturday, April 3, Bolu claims that his revelation about his sexuality has made more closet homosexuals come out of their shell and speak their truth.
He went on to state that his coming out has given some visibility to the LGBTQ community in Nigeria.
According to him, one of the sons of a high profiled politician in Nigeria contacted him and said he would also love to come out of the closet.
Bolu said several other influential Nigerians have also reached out to him as well.
Bolu did not however give any names, leaving many guessing who they could be.
