According to Uti Nwachukwu, women play a role in why some gay men opt to marry women to conceal their sexual orientation. The model and actor highlighted how women’s attitudes towards men who have openly acknowledged their sexuality contribute to these circumstances.
His remarks came in response to an Instagram user’s comment urging more men to come out and cease deceiving women.
Uti responded, emphasizing the need for women to halt the bullying directed at men who have embraced their sexual identity. He emphasized that the societal shame imposed on men often pushes them towards marrying women as a cover-up, asserting that the choice ultimately rests with women themselves.
