Kenyan media personality Anita Nderu has sparked mixed reactions online after announcing she is a member of the LGBTQ community.
Nderu, a former presenter at Capital FM, revealed this through a post on her Twitter page on Thursday, saying she hopes her kids will not be subjected to what she has gone through for being LGBTQ.
“I hope my kids never have to go through what I have gone through for being LGBTQ+,” Anita wrote.
Her announcement comes weeks after she came under heavy criticism from social media users for hosting two gay men on her YouTube show. Anita later defended her show, saying her guests were only friends who decided to show their real selves.
Anita has been a staunch supporter of Kenyan lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) persons.
