Cross-dressing is generally condemned and frowned upon by many Africans who consider it to be a taboo even though historically, it’s deeply rooted in the African culture.
But Nigerian fashion blogger, makeup artist and well known cross-dresser Onyx Godwin Ogaga has clarified the misconceptions about cross-dressing and why he cross-dresses.
Ogaga, who many considers controversial, appeared as a panelist on a recent episode of ‘The Inside Out Show’ together with other Nigerians to discuss the issue.
On the show, he mentioned that he cross-dresses to compliment his personality and that even though some people are not pleased with the way he expresses himself, he doesn’t really care, as he is very comfortable in his own skin.
The show also addressed the issue of homosexuality of which Dr. Adegbaju Dapo stressed that even though it was considered a mental disorder in the past by psychiatrists, it has now been considered a sexual orientation and no longer an illness, which means that homosexuality is a natural and normal sexual orientation as well as a healthy and positive expression of human sexuality.
