Top Nigerian Actress Defends Homosexuals In New Interview

Nigerian Actress and singer, Ashionye Michelle Raccah admonished Nigerians to stop finding faults in homosexuality.

She  says that has homosexuality is not a disease, hence the need for Nigerians to end discrimination against homosexuals.

The one time popular actress said this to QedTV at the premiere of Funmi Iyanda’s movie, Walking with Shadows.

Speaking at the premiere of the movie which is about a married man whose wife later found out he was gay, Ashionye said people need to realize that a person is not made to be gay but is born gay.

“It’s high time we began to accept every human being irrespective of their sexuality. I’m a human being whether I am straight or gay. It’s high time we began to realise that we are basically just one and we shouldn’t judge. I know we have this 14 year sentencing in Nigeria but then again you can’t change a person whoever he or she is.

“Some people say being gay is made, you become gay. I don’t believe that. I believe someone who is gay is born that way, that’s who the person is, and it is not a disease. It is not something to be afraid of. It is not something to judge” she said.

Asked if she will accept her child if he or she grows up to be gay, Ashionye responded

If you are born straight, that’s who you are. If I am born lesbian, that’s who I am. I did not become lesbian. Like I said, it’s not a disease. I have people close to me, family and close friends, who are actually homosexual men and queer women and I absolutely love them. To be honest, I have a lot of male friends who are actually homosexuals and they give the best advice. They love me for who I am and I absolutely love them for who they are”.

When asked if she supports the repeal of the 14 year jail penalty for any homosexual caught in the act, she said

”Yes! Why should we judge people for who they are. Why should we crucify people for who they are. Like I said, it’s not a disease. It is not a crime. If a man or woman is being judged for being queer or being gay, then why am I not being judged for being straight?

    This lady is talking to please her Oyibo husband or boyfriend. If being gay or lesbian is natural (which she refers as born gay or lesbian) why then did God create Eve for Adam? He could have left Adam alone or create Eve and leave her alone. To me it is a sin of the highest order, I may be wrong and I may be right. Personally, I do not hate gays or lesbians but LET NO GAY person approach me for intimacy if he/she does not want to end up in the hospital. This actress is right where she said gays and lesbians are nice people. Those I have observed are really very nice. We may hate their lesbianism or gaysm but let us not discriminate against them for their sexual orientation.

    You must have said this stupid thing to please your fake oyinbo man, so that you can get what you want. An African marrying an English is solely for two issues. One, enjoying drugs together or economic gains etc. Homosexuality is not the African thing not even the English. It is mental issue 100000000000000000&
