Bold Network CEO Makena Njeri opened up about their gender orientation so that their experiences can be the gateway to all people being loved for who they are and just as they are.
In a post on Instagram, Makena said after opening up, a lot has happened that is not regrettable.
"I have made myself vulnerable and made my life an open book. All this so that my experiences can be the gateway to all people being loved for who they are and just as they are," Makena wrote.
Makena added that after doing interviews many people have resonated with their (Makena) journey and have felt a sense of belonging.
"Trust me I also belong because of ya’ll. I have openly talked about my love experiences and celebrated love loudly so that others can gain the courage to do the same and to feel free to love who they love like everyone else," Makena said.
Makena said their vulnerability has made them walk on the streets with other activists to fight for the rights of other people, sometimes leading to arrests.
"I have had sad days when everything didn’t make sense at all breaking in every possible way. Spent days in police stations trying to make sense of it all while still being patient enough to educate the system."
"I am constantly letting vulnerability to take over my existence so that because of my journey we can accelerate acceptance and have all round love in society without discrimination and hate.
I do my advocacy through my daily life experiences shared with the world. This is yet another chapter of my life I am about to share with you."
