Anita Nderu became the topic of discussion on Twitter after she came out and said she is part of the LGBTQ+ family.
"I hope my kids never have to go through what I have gone through for being LGBTQ+."
As Kenyans, it is pretty obvious that some of us have not embraced them because the shade Anita received when she came out, was harsh.
"I shan't apologise for my belief that love is LOVE. If we can accept half the things we suffer through in this country, surely we can accept love unconditionally." Anita said
This sparked an intense conversation on Twitter, with many questioning her sexuality, while others questioned her decision to post such information on social media.
In an interview, Anita said that confession made her lose some clients as an influencer.
"Many brands to date refuse to work with me out of fear of looking controversial, some even asked me to take down any work I did with them. However, many stood by me and like I said I am so grateful for every one of them." She told WordIs
Anita said she is grateful to all the people and brands who stood by her and accepted the opinions of those who did not.
In the African culture, we fear our parents right after God. So how did this news sit with her parents?
"They laughed at the hypocrisy and judged everyone who judged her because they believe love is unconditional.
It's called life. If I spend my one time here worrying about negative opinions, I would not be doing life right. I accept positive criticism, just not hypocrisy."
She is a member of the LGBTQ+ and that is all we have to know. She said she will not reveal where she falls and that we should keep guessing. It is entertaining.
"Live you! Happiness in the mix is so important. Everyone around you is living theirs, why shouldn't you? " Anita advised those who are afraid to come out.
One thing that she made clear is that she is still in a relationship with her DJ Sun so the letters have been reduced. Let the guessing game continue.
