Gay activist Bisi Alimi has taken us through some of the reasons why he thinks gay men marry straight women in Nigeria without telling them.
Bisi Alimi’s video is a reaction to the recent concern of a psychologist expressing worry over the rate at which gay men and pansexuals are getting married to straight women in Nigeria saying it’s unfair to deceive people into marriage.
Aside from religion and morality that make it difficult for gay men to come out, the Nigerian gay acts also make it impossible for gay men to marry each other because they are to face 14yrs in jail if any of them are caught.
According to Bisi Alimi, he’s in no way trying to make fun or make the pain and suffering people who are caught up in the web of marrying gay men look less but rather try to make them understand what is going on and see if they can found a solution to the whole issue.

Bisi Alimi disclosed that the expectation of the family and society from gay people is another reason why they marry straight women to give them what they expect from them and we all know no straight woman will agree to marry a gay if the man opens up to her.
Adding that even if the gay man opens up to the woman before getting married, society and everyone might turn their back on him, and everything he had worked so hard for will just go down the drain hence they prefer to remain in their closet.
With all that Bisi Alimi said in regards to gay men marrying straight women without telling them, we realized that they are scared of losing looking at how the society will treat them if they come out hence prefer to be in their closet and give society what it wants.
