I'm Nigerian. I'm queer. I'm poor.
We exist. We are actually the overwhelming majority. Most of us are actually poor. Maybe ask yourself why your politics is committed to stripping poor queer people of agency. Why is your politics exclusionary and centered around the affluent?

Live your life. Write that code. Sing that song. Design that dress. Get that job. Quit that job. Swim that river. Plant that rose. Love that person. Emigrate to that country. Take that risk. Live your life.
