Lupita Nyongo blesses GAY Marriage

Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o attended a friend’s same-sex wedding yesterday.


Posting on her Facebook page, the 12 Years A Slave actress thanked and congratulated the loving couple, celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson and partner Jason Backe.

‘I witnessed the man who adds so much beauty to my life legalize his beautiful marriage,’ she said.

‘Thank you for the reminder that love and its declaration can be simple. Congratulations @tedgibsonbeauty.’

Gibson and Backe said their vows at Pier 46, Hudson River Park in New York City.

Earlier this year, Nyong’o attended the GLAAD awards to present the Outstanding Documentary win to the directors of Call Me Kuchu and Bridegroom. The latter is about a man who lost everything after his partner died, deprived of legal protection because the two were not allowed to get married.

‘I wanted to be here tonight to stand in solidarity with this community and to support GLAAD’s efforts to use the power of the media to create a more accepting and just world,’ she said.

Is it YAY or NAY to see an African bless gay marriage, considering the African disposition to gay marriage?
