Nigeria’s first gay pastor, founder of secret gay church, House of Rainbow, Rowland Jide Macaulay, has advised black clergies or faith leaders, especially in Africa who are lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender or intersex to come out of hiding.
He advised them to accept who they were and fight their battles and take charge.
The homosexual pastor revealed this on his Facebook page.
Quoting the Bible, Macaulay wrote: “Matthew 5:16 – Let your light
shine before people in such a way that they may see your good works, and
glorify your God who is in heaven.”
Continuing, he wrote: “Black Clergy or Faith leaders especially in
Africa who are lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender or intersex, I see
you only at the back of the battle for equal human rights, theological
correctness in the church or in your faith communities.
“You need to rush forward with a theology of visibility, you need to
say I am here I am gay and I am fabulous. The same goes for all the gays
in any form of ministry in the church.
“Let’s get one thing right. We all need allies in solidarity. I am
for building alliances. Feminist movement will cherish alliances from
men, black movement welcome alliances from white people, gay people
welcome alliance from straight folks etc.
“What I don’t understand is the laziness of fighting our own battles
when we suddenly step back and allow our alliances to carry the burden
of our issues almost alone, many are making far more sacrifices than we
“This is a fact. When we stand together, we support our allies and together we bring changes,” he added.
