"That’s like my parents telling me don’t use the term “God is dope” because I shouldn’t associate God with drugs."

@ilakatamafiliya said:

"Same energy as Indians updating their fb dp with the rainbow filter thinking it's just a random colourful filter."

@chainmailmitten said:

"That is SO sweet. My grandparents are convinced I'm non-binary because somehow (how?!) that was the first gender issue they paid attention to... I cannot convince them that no, I'm just a short gay man with weird fashion sense."

In some other #Pride news, Briefly News previously reported that Pride Month is here and many have come out of the closet to celebrate this special 30-day event. For the first time, Kenyan musician Karen Kaz has revealed that she loves a woman identified as Majic Dyke.

The pole dancer shared a video of getting cosy with her lover and pampered her with lots of love.

"And before the day ends, it’s our sixth month anniversary today. My love, my heart, my life partner. I love you with every shred of my being! Happy Pride. I love you @majic.dyke," Karen posted.

Karen's lover came out to disclose that she is in a polyamorous relationship with the musician and a white woman identified as Dame Yankee.

"I am deeply and wildly in love with @dameyankee & @kazkarenlucas," Maji posted.

Majic said she met Dame in a bar in Washington DC three years ago and their love continues to grow stronger every day. Majic revealed that she knew about Karen through a mutual friend who introduced her to the singer's Instagram page.

"I shot my shot in her DMs, got rejected, sat my a** down (tried again in a few months to see if she changed her mind) and eventually found my way into her heart. Our two-year journey has gone from friendship to romance, to wild kinky s**t," she said.

Majic is happy to be with the two beautiful women and she revealed that they agreed to be in a triad relationship.

"The three of us chose to be in a triad in December 2020 and have spent the last 5 months learning each other. Ethical non-monogamy ain't for the faint of heart. We’re committed to growing in love with each other, and the more we heal ourselves, the deeper our union becomes," she disclosed.
