Try it, it’s pleasant, Ayo Sogunro advises man who labelled him gay


Nigerian author and human rights lawyer, Ayo Sogunro, has given a staggering response to a man who accused him of being gay on Twitter.

The exchange between Sogunro and the Twitter user, Abiodun Bello, began after the essayist in a thread on Saturday said that Nigerians will unite to condemn queer people than condemn government officials.

Sogunro called Nigerians ‘clowns’ who resist the ‘gay agenda’ and still say they don’t condemn queer people.

He wrote;

”I woke up thinking of this again. Nigerians will unite to condemn a queer person simply for being queer than unite to condemn a confirmed terrorist sympathiser who has been implicated in a murder.

Not the worst homophobes and transphobes suddenly pretending Nigerians are united supporters of the LGBT community. The jokes write themselves on this app.

Since many are now suddenly forgetful: LGBT people tried to make a visible stand during End SARS, Nigerians resisted. A man went to Abuja on hunger strike against the SSMPA last month. Nigerians dragged him for days. A few days back, a man was dragged for his ‘queer’ clothes.

The same people who will resist ‘gay agenda’ are the same ones saying Nigerians don’t condemn queer people. Am I living in an alternate reality or is it not this same Nigeria? Clowns.”’

Bello, who stumbled on his thread, then asked him to come out as a gay man with his full chest.

He wrote;

”Come out plainly…. There are unverified information out there that you sef dey collect from back. Advocate for same sex marriage with your chest”

In response to the Twitter user, Ayo wrote;

 ”And so what if I collect it from back? You should try it, it is pleasant.”
