Radio and TV personality Anita Nderu has revealed standing up for the LGBTQ community in Kenya on Twitter Mid this year cost her several clients.
“Many brands to date refuse to work with me out of fear of looking controversial, some even asked me to take down any work I did with them,” she said while speaking to The Star Newspaper.
“However, many stood by me and like I said I am so grateful for every one of them.”
Nderu, who was coming off a split from her longtime fiancee, took to Twitter four months ago to announce she’s part of the LGBTQ community.
“I hope my kids never have to go through what I have gone through for being LGBTQ+,” she tweeted raising a lot of eyebrows and set tongues wagging.

Even though she got burned for this, she’s not relenting and hopes LGBTQ will become a norm in Kenya in the near future.
“I shan’t apologize for my belief that love is LOVE. If we can accept half the things we suffer through in this country, surely we can accept love unconditionally,” she said.
