Kenyan actress Njeri Gachomba, professionally known as Njambi has come out as a lesbian and a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community.
Speaking in an interview, the former Real House helps of Kawangware actress said she has decided to come out so as to create awareness.
“As Denis Karari says, lets not judge people based on who they love. It doesn’t mean am a bad person, I am not stealing nor killing someone.. people say LGBT members are bad.
Why bother about my life? Let us just accept LGBT persons, love is love,” Njambi said.
The actress is vocal in advocating for LGBT rights amid harsh criticism in the African society.
“Am open-minded. I believe that love is love, and we are allowed to love who we want regardless of the gender.”
Njambi shared one of her past experiences, saying people around her knew about it in a content shared on her YouTube channel.
Here, she revealed how she was trolled on social media for saying she loves girls.
“These things are normal.. Guys traumatized me, society kills people so much.”
Njambi also recognizes some challenges that members of the LGBT community experience at a family level.
” Some are isolated by their families, taken for prayers.. or even chased away from their homes. Africans make it feel like it’s a bad thing to love someone of the same gender. Like it’s a sin,” Njambi shared.
The challenges, she said, extend to workplaces and businesses.
She narrated about her past and the only time she experienced true love, and not from guys. she is not talking about her baby daddy, she is talking about one of her schoolmates with whom she had a romantic affair.
