Nigeria’s transgender Ms Sahhara is a happy woman at the moment. Ms Sahhara who is now in a relationship revealed how difficult it is for people to accept women like her and how her boyfriend has been managing it against all odds.
Here is what she wrote on her Facebook page about her lover, and the kind of questions his friends ask him about their love life.
“I have a new found respect for men who date/love/marry women like us: ……………..They get the same hate/discrimination we are subjected to every single day, even from their so called ‘friends’………….Ignorant fools asking them stupid questions ‘Did you know she used to be ‘this’ and ‘that’? Why her?
What does she have between her legs? What is the sex like? ………..it takes a real man with a heart of gold to look past all of that negativity to be with whom they love. Love is unconditional……..I am a very lucky woman to be loved by my partner unconditionally amidst so much hate. — feeling Proud.”
