Popular gay Nigerian cleric, Jide Macaulay, who was ordained an Anglican priest by the Church of England last year, has revealed the meaning of GAY.
According to Macaulay, G-A-Y means God Adores You. He made this known in a recent Youtube video, where he talked about reconciling his sexuality with his faith and practice.
"GAY means God Adores You. Let's celebrate Pride month with all of our queerness, blackness and faith in God." he said.
Macaulay, who is a theologian and HIV+ Activist, in the video says he initially found it challenging to find his place as a a gay, Black and African man of faith.
Macaulay who was born on November 4, 1965, founded House of Rainbow, Nigeria's first house of worship catering to the LGBTQ community, and currently serves as its executive director.
