Popular cross-dresser, Idris Okuneye, also known as Bobrisky has reacted to a move by the House of Representatives to prohibit cross-dressing in Nigeria.
News agents had reported that Umar Muda, a member of the House of Representatives had last week introduced a bill to prohibit cross-dressing in Nigeria.
The bill seeks to ban cross-dressing with the exemption of those using it for entertainment.
With this proposed law, crossdressers now risk 6 months in prison if passed
The bill seeks to amend the same-sex marriage (prohibition) act of 2013 by including cross-dressing as one of the offences under the act.
Reacting to the bill, Bobrisky in a post on his Instagram page insisted he was not a crossdresser but a woman, having done many surgeries that can’t be reversed.
“I’m not a cross-dresser, I’m a woman. I have done many surgeries that can’t be reversed such as lipo, boobs etc.
“When the time comes, even the court self go confirm am say I’m now a girl.”
