Bolu Okupe is the son of Dr. Doyin Okupe, a physician and politician in Nigeria, where LGBTQ rights are severely limited and same-sex relationships are outlawed. Bolu, currently in Paris, revealed on his Instagram that he is “Gay AF,” posing for photos in Pride-designed shorts while holding the Pride flag. Bolu has been out for at least a year, talking about his identity and participation in the LGBTQ community in several YouTube videos. However, the sudden and open revelation on social media has caused a frenzy, especially in his home country. Bolu faced several homophobic comments saying he would be “dead” if he came to other parts of Africa and others calling him “against our God.”
