Proud lesbian Kenyan pastor opens up about her attraction to women in emotional interview


Jacinta Nzilani spoke to a local radio station about her 25-year marriage to a man despite knowing since she was 16 that she was attracted women. She said: “When I was 16 I realised that I was attracted to women more than men. It is not a habit, it is something that is inside me.” When she was 18, she decided to join a convent and become a nun, but in the first few days she was inappropriately touched by a priest. She left and returned home, but soon after was “married off to a man” almost twice her age. She stayed married to her husband for 25 years and had three children, before he passed away 11 years ago. Although Nzilani was already a pastor, when her true sexuality was revealed most of the members of her church left and she was forced to start afresh. She added: “I started a programme where I interacted with women and tried to understand them. A few years later I had a relationship with one of the women.”
