Pamela Adie, the Executive Director of Equality Hub, has revealed what happened after she came out as a lesbian to her parents 7 years ago. She made this revelation to counter Segun Runsewe’s morality argument.
Otunba Segun Runsewe, the Director General of the National Council of Arts and Culture, narrated how a mother went into a coma because the daughter she sent to school in Germany became a lesbian. Runsewe shared this story to defend his decision to “protect our culture” and keep fighting immorality after the video of half naked ladies dancing in a transparent truck for Tekno’s music video, emerged.
But Twitter users called out Runsewe for his statement. They countered his argument that a child coming out as gay could lead the parent to have a stroke.
Pamela, who made the documentary film Under The Rainbow, weighed in by narrating how she came out to her parents yet their relationship still remains intact.
Sharing Runsewe’s statement, she wrote: I came out as lesbian to my parents about 7 years ago. I just returned from Abuja where my father and the rest of my family celebrated my mum’s 65th birthday!”
