- Nandi Madida has extended her support to the LGBQTI+ community in South Africa during very difficult times
- The singer and media personality took to social media to apologise to the community for what they are facing
- Nandi Madida's fans and other social media users were thankful for the support that she showed to the marginalised members of society
It has been a heavy time for the LGBTQI community given the stigmas against them and Nandi Madida has come out to show her support. The singer took to social media to say that she stands with the community and she's sending them lots of love. She tweeted:
"Sending love and light to LGBTQI+ community. May you live your truth with no fear always and be you unapologetically. I am so sorry for all the senseless attacks."
In a country like South Africa, living your truth as being part of the community is not easy and people have been attacked for being who they are.
Nandi is heartbroken that people who are part of the LGBTQI community are being treated this way and hopes that things will get better for them soon.
Same-sex marriage has been allowed in South Africa since 2006 but some people are still not welcoming people who are homosexual.
Recently, a man named Lulu Ntuthela was attacked and brutally killed and this caused outrage from the community. Queer people in Mzansi find it hard to be safe because some people are not welcoming.
In other entertainment news, Briefly News reported that Somizi Mhlongo visited the family of an LGBTQI victim of bullying and hate crime. Media personality Somizi Mhlongo took a flight to Gqeberha so he could show support to Lulu Ntuthela's family.
Lulu was allegedly attacked and murdered for being gay. Since he is also part of the LGBTQI community, Somizi wants to be there for Lulu's family. He tweeted:
"Flew to Gqeberha this morning to give support to the family of the brutally murdered member of our LGBTIQ+ fam LULU... I'll be back on the 1st June for the court hearing."
Somizi feels that he needs to show his support as a public figure and is doing his best to show up for the LGBTQI community.
