A Nigerian gay man took to the micro blogging platform to advise naive queer youths to accept and love their queer bodies.

According to the twitter user, who identified as Dan Yomi, shared his struggles as a gay youth pastor who prayed to God to deliver from the spirit of homosexuality and yet still craved strongly all the sexual proclivities.

In the viral post that garnered over a thousand reactions, Yomi wrote;

”I was a youth pastor in Nigeria & a 20 year old praying for God to deliver me from the spirit of homosexuality

Those were dark times in my life & I’m glad to be in a much better place now So No, you can’t pray the ‘gay’ away & the earlier you accept & love urself, the better!”
