Kenya’s first lesbian pastor has defended her sexuality and said that LGBT+ people are “children of God” in a powerful interview.

Jacinta Nzilani—who came out as a lesbian in February of this year—made the comments in an interview with Kenya’s Tuko TV when she was asked about Biblical passages condemning homosexuality.

The evangelist who preaches in Nairobi replied: “God didn’t give us freedom which is limited—it is unlimited. I am free to choose what I want.”

She continued: “The way they [LGBT+ people] relate—the way they associate and express themselves—should not be agenda for others to block them, criminalise them and let them be cocooned somewhere.

“They are people of God, children of God, and God has given us all things in equity. If it is life, it is equal to everybody. If it is salvation, he gave it to us all”.

Kenya’s lesbian pastor Jacinta Nzilani was married to a man before coming out as a lesbian.

In the interview, the lesbian pastor spoke about her long journey towards coming out in Kenya, a country that still has an oppressive regime against LGBT+ people.

She explained that she was married to a man for many years, and that she came to realise through “all the struggle in the marriage” that she “loves women.”
