Popular Nigerian gay activist Bisi Alimi is unhappy Nigerians gave CNN international anchor, Richard Quest of “Quest means Business” a rousing welcome to Nigeria. He questioned why Nigerians attitude toward the Richard who is gay, is different from what he gets as a Nigeria.
Here’s what he said:
“So I heard Richard Quest is in Nigeria and as usual, my people are drooling over him. These are the same Nigerians that will not allow an openly gay person on their screen, or even give one a job. What is different about Richard Quest that makes his homosexuality harmless but my homosexuality as a Nigeria scary and threatening? Is it that my people think my homosexuality is in some way earth destroying but that is Richard comforting or as a people we just lack pure emotional intelligence to appreciate our own? My heart bleeds for Nigeria, it does make me cry for my LGBT brothers and sisters.”
Richard Quest came out as a gay man in June 2014.
