A Nigerian lady identified as Pamela Adie, recently inspired members of the internet community after sharing her personal struggles, wins and achievement over the last decade, as she celebrated her ‘freedom day’.

According to Adie, the event marks 10 years since she took the life changing decision of coming out as a lesbian, while ditching marriage, and the perks of motherhood. She noted that she would have been living as a closeted lesbian in her marriage, if she never spoke up.

"By now, I would have had 3 children and would have been celebrating the 10th anniversary of the wedding to my ex-husband. Many would have clapped and congratulated me for having been married for so long. But I wouldn’t have been honest with my self and those celebrating me...no one would know that I am lesbian behind closed doors. But today, I celebrate my truth and my freedom," Adie wrote.
