Fast forward to 2016, Bisi Alimi, will be getting married to his partner, Anthony in November took to his Instagram page to show off the Nigerian female Reverend that will officiate his wedding.

He wrote this on his Instagram page,
“Day 17 of 30 days to my wedding of 30 things to be grateful for. She is an ordained priest of the Anglican Church, a mother, sister, aunt and friend to a lot of marginalised group. Most importantly, she is a Nigerian and a strong ally of LGBT people. She has taught me a lot about pure Christian faith that is rooted in ‘love your neighbour as you love yourself’. Her Christian hugs has given a lot of us love and hope. Even when we are upset and angry at the venom of hate that comes from Nigeria Christians, she showed us there aww better, humane and loving people of faith.
This woman has been at the fore front of HIV work in UK for the gay and black community. She doesn’t have a gay soon, lesbian daughter or Trans or Bi relatives. She loved everyone because when she sees them, she sees the human in them.
