Bernardine Evaristo debunks #Homophobia in #Africa ..’ – #In14Ways #BernardineEvaristo #MercyfulGrace

Africa is well lit with controversy vehemently on sexuality. Some primitive ideology permits that narrow minded view where ignorance is partly king. Bernardine’s article is refreshing.

Nigeria for instance criminalises the lgbtq+ community for 14yrs if convicted in the act between consenting adults, but will gladly force marry a 13yr old girl into marriage with a 40 year old grown man without remorse.

It’s hypocritical to the best of my reasoning of understanding. It’s illogical. Where is the hypocrisy and where is the freewill? After all, love does not manipulate other’s freewill.

That hate in your heart does not belong to me. You can keep it for no one else for your sakes’ ..’ – Aremuorin

I have always maintained Africa’s irrational, traditional homophobia, is misplaced. This article is lit with facts away from religious abuse & cultural ignorance. About time, we start re – educating ourselves.

#Listen: God is love. I am pro #love. An avid friend, confident & supporter of the Lgbtq+ community and it’s environs worldwide. Get used to it & worry about your own sinful #hypocrises.

Toxic Masculinity, Self Hate & Homophobic triads does not make you a man. Love is not #adversarial. The personification: of love, is love.

Culture is not set in stone. Otherwise, we’d still be ridding donkeys to Jerusalem and burning witches at the stake.

Here is the irony. The self-hating, in denial, closeted lgbtq+ communities, are self-demonising, and also being demonised with rhetorics of fear, mis-education & shaming antics.

Yet, it does not stop their closeted sexual conquest’s, aggressive male-volent, projections, or promiscuity. It only drives them further underground with prevalent risks to more undisclosed STD’S or HIV cross infections, between their (multiple) sexual partners and spouses.

Straight folks, by far; are not homophobes. It might gross them out mildly, in thoughts. End off. They don’t go on a homophobe, witch-hunt, anarchy triad of persecution of the lgbtq+ community. They are too involved thinking of getting laid by the opposite sex. Those who do are simply self-hating & self-projecting.

There was a time that the killing of twins was acceptable in Africa, just like the burning of witches at the stake in the west. I bet they all look stupid, now, rolling in their graves; in their ignorance.

Why is Africa always the last to know? Just like some Africans still believe Jesus is white and still waiting for him to come and save them from their sins.

So, tell me. What has Africa resolved and achieved with this illogical, antiquated-thinking, hypocrisy, denial and avoidable ignorance?

Performing at BlackOutUK ..’ – #MercyfulGrace #LoveIsLove #BlkOutUK

Written by Anthony Everest

I was, last minute called, on the last sunday of the year to perform, at the first BlackoutUK brunch, which was my pleasure. A great honour, to be asked, to perform my new self penned song IfYouNeedMe. Thank you Nzube for the capture🙏🏿.

This year, I wrote & produced a compilation album featuring a brand new self penned song “If You Need Me”, from the forth coming Ep “OBLIVION”, scheduled for realease in 2020. Also won 6 awards internationally for “Music & Community Support” including “Oustanding Creative Artiste Of The Year from BBI

The critiques that challenged my decision to perform here got me thinking. Then, it just occurred to me, that – On #2020Vission:

I guess it’s safe to say, nobody is normal. Otherwise, it would be, a perfect world. Self love brings clarity.

My self esteem is not wrapped around your likes, or dislikes. Just because it’s successful does not mean it’s credible.

That’s why some of you don’t want to wake up. You love illusions, fairytales and daydreams. Perfect, myriads for the slavemaster.

Do you and #FollowYourDreams. I am pretty sure if Jesus listened to his critiques he would have left humanities cross of shame behind at calvary. That’s why Jesus said its finished.

Some folks have been through hell from cultural & religious abuse. So this space is ideal for respite or re-conditioning the mind, body & soul with great networking opportunities in a safe environment.

Since 2012. Many friends and colleagues told me to work closely with the LGBTQ+ community. I didn’t get it. Now. I do. Straight folks are not homophobes. Self haters are. So much work to do. So little time to do it. Love is a wonderful cure for antiquated #ignorance ..’ – #In14Ways

#2020Vission #Love #AnthonyEverestMusic

Love is the only truth and only the truth can set you #free. The rest is a waste of precious #time and we all know time is #money. Nobody is wasting #mine.

When God has given me greatness; why hide it under a rock – for fools?

Culture is not set in stone; otherwise, we would still be ridding donkeys to Jerusalem and burning witches at the stake.

Bromance? ..’ – #In14Ways #Bromasexuality #MercyfulGrace

Written by Aremuorin

New York Times, Jim Farber – wrote about a new age of ‘male codes’ on the new “pop cultural norms”, around bromanhood.

It is a very well researched piece and thought provoking too. I for one, wasted no time to find out more.

I have always found my orientation un traditional, topical, chin-wagging, or mis understood. This gave me some nuggetts of wisdom for clarity.

Just like, or unlike, me, from a traditional view point, or out of curiosity for interest to dismiss or educate, read more here.
