Yomi, who is currently based in the UK, came out to his family sometime early last year on Whatsapp. Since then, he and his boyfriend moved in together and have been living what he calls his best life. Yomi, who shared the photo of their kiss on social media, said it used to be a huge deal to show the world publicly what they shared privately. That was partly because his boyfriend was still in the closet. Yomi wrote about Valentine’s Day: “As it’s our third Val together, I thought I’d share how far we’ve come as two gay Nigerian men in love … with the hope that some queer kid reading from Africa or anywhere around the world can aspire to live free someday. “I still remember how during our first Val in 2018, we were living secretly in love, couldn’t share our love with family or strangers. We cared so much about what people would say, … which led us to prioritise the opinions of friends, families & strangers over our happiness.
