On Saturday, 5th November, 2016, popular United Kingdom-based Nigerian gay and LGBT rights activist, Bisi Alimi, married his British lover, Anthony in England.
While expressing satisfaction and excitement over the turnout, Alimi wrote: “In the presence of friends and family from around the world, Anthony and I will say ‘I Do’. But we remember places in the world where love is (a) crime.”
He also took to social media to share some of the pictures as people congratulated him.
“Congratulations to @bisialimi, gay rights activist, public speaker, blog writer & HIV/LGBT advocate, on his marriage to Anthony! #LoveWins,” one Kevin Maxwell wrote in reply to Alimi’s tweet.
