Nigerian model and singer Miss saHHara (pictured above – who was born male) claimed in an article yesterday to mark the Transgender Day of Remembrance that she was harassed and jailed in Nigeria for being a transgender and even attempted suicide but is now proud and free.
Miss SaHHara writes…

Quote
I am standing in front of the mirror looking at my reflection. Tears of joy trickle down my rouged cheek before going on stage. I am in tears because I just can’t believe how realistic my dreams have become. I am a woman! Living my life freely. Accepted and respected for my achievements as a model and a performer.

My fellow transgendered sisters and brothers paved this way for me. They fought for acceptance, understanding and respect. Some died while fighting for what they believed in and others fell before their time due to hate, rejection and society’s unfairness. Every single story gave me strength to fight on and never to give up.

LISTEN VERY CAREFULLY TRANS WHATEVER YOU CALL YOURSELF. YOU CAN FREELY DO THAT NONSENSE AND UNGODLY THING IN EUROPE AND THE US, BUT AROUND THIS PLACE IN THE CULTURAL AFRICAN CONTINENT IT IS PRACTICALLY UNACCEPTABLE BY OUR GOOD CULTURE EVEN OUR RELIGION AS CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS, UNDERSTAND? JUST DON'T BRING IT ALONG IT WILL BE DEALT WITH.

DEMOCRACY DOESN'T MEAN DO WHATEVER YOU LIKE AND GET AWAY WITH IT. YOU WILL NEVER DISREGARD OUR CULTURE AND DO WHATEVER THAT PLEASES YOU IN THAT CRAZY MANNER.

YOU SHOULD KNOW THE NATURE OF THE TRADITION HERE IN OUR COUNTRY AND CONTINENT. AFRICANS ARE THE MOST CULTURED PEOPLE ON EARTH AND WE THANK GOD FOR THAT, AND WE WILL NEVER COMPROMISE OUR CULTURE FOR ANY WESTERN REASON OR MENTALITY.

WE STRUCTURED AND POSITIONED OUR CULTURE BEFORE THE INVASION OF THE WEST IN AFRICA AND WE MUST RESPECT AND PROTECT OUR CULTURE BECAUSE IT IS OUR PRIDE. PURE AND SIMPLE.
