Watch the Exclusive Interview Below
Bolu Okupe created headlines in January 2021 when he came out of the closet as a gay man, and his activism is not only rocking his birthplace of Nigeria, but also elevating the conversation around LGBTQI+ civil rights on an international scale. Among the headlines, MetroSource reported, “Out in Africa: Bolu Okupe is ‘Gay AF’”.
As Bolu explains to PromoHomo.TV®, “My father is a very well-known politician in Nigeria who has also often expressed homophobic & anti LGBT sentiments.”
While Bolu came out while living in Paris, France—where they have legal protections for the LGBTQI+ community, his father, Dr. Doyin Okupe—a high-ranking, conservative, Christian, Nigerian government official with 270,000+ Twitter followers—stated (as quoted by the Premium Times), “My son is on a Godly mission…” LGBTQNation reported the headline, “Christian official says his newly out son will be a secret ‘instrument of God’ to change gay people.”
