A Nigerian lawyer and writer, Elnathan John has showered praises on Nigerian cross-dresser Bobrisky as according to him, the self-acclaimed Nigerian Barbie Doll is a million times braver than he his.
He took to his Twitter page to laud the effeminate, saying Bobrisky seems to be stronger than most activists he knows.
He believes if in a society that openly frowns against what Bobrisky stands to believe in and he still maintain his stand in all circumstances, then the bleaching cream expert deserves some accolades.
Read his tweets below:
“One day in Nigeria we will talk about Bobrisky’s quiet revolution. Theses will be written about how, with all her issues, she is challenging the meaning and idea of gender in a way more radical than we can ever do with words. You don’t have to like her. But she is important.
Bobrisky is a million times braver than I will ever be. Braver than most activists I know. In a country where you are one wrong move, one wrong place away from death, away from a mob, away from murderous religious bigots selective in their enforcement of the rules of their gods.
Remember the cross-dresser had at a time openly mentioned that he was gay without any fear of being prosecuted.
