Bisi Alimi Throws It Back To 1999 (Photos)

Lol, he has been counting down to his wedding which will take place next month. While throwing back to this photo (left above) Bisi made it clear that he is not trying to be a woman and he is happy he is a man and will remain like that. Below is how he captioned the photo… a bit long tho! God be with Bisi!

"Day 13 of 30 days to my wedding of 30 things to be grateful for. The first time I put on a dress was at university of Lagos. I was drafted to act a role at the last minute as the character did it turn up. I am sure @denrele_edun will remember this event. We were acting for Atiku's wife while she was visiting. Many times after that, I have dressed. I dressed up hosting many gay parties in #Lagos. In 1999, as a very young 24years old, I won the glamorous Miss Gay Lagos. It was an honour. As a man (yes, just in case some of you are confused) wearing a dress and heels and stockings is liberating for me. I am not a woman and I do not want to be a woman. When I wear dresses, I wear them as a man.m, and this is why it is very liberating for me. It connects with my vulnerability. As an African man, there is an expectation of what it means to be a man. Wearing a dress is also a statement of fuck you to patriarchy. I don't do conformity. I live in my head and in my world. I would go naked and take a picture of it if I feel so good about it. Then came last year and I met @msposhp and she changed my world. She made me understand that beauty has no gender and a dress is a dress is a dress. The joy I feel when I take on the character of Ms Posh is overwhelming. She takes me to another level. Also when @obehinoir make her up, she transforms into this beautiful woman I have been dying to meet and know. Ms Posh is an act, she is only real in my head and in your imagination. That imagination if you let it loose will change the way you see women and treat women. As a man a dress, I have experience sexual harassment and verbal abuse and to me it is interesting how just a dress changed the way people treat me. Unfortunately, Ms Posh is not invited to me wedding, but I am sure, she will be standing next to me in my head when I say 'I Do' to my man. #samesexmarriage #samesexwedding #30daysofthankfulness #equalmarriage #weddingday #dragqueen"
