Nigeria’s gay pastor celebrates 50th birthday

04 November 2015, 15:18

Lagos -Rev Rowland Jide Macaulay, the gay minister who founded House of Rainbow, Nigeria’s only gay church, which was forced to close in 2008, has expressed his gratitude to God in celebration of his 50th birthday, Vanguard reports.

The 50-year-old cleric whose church was forced to close down said he was delighted and grateful to the almighty God, who is incomparable, the omnipotent and magnificent God.

He also expressed gratitude to his parent who brought him up and supported him all the way despite hardship and unfavourable conditions.

Macaulay first set up House of Rainbow in 2006, when he openly held Sunday services in a Lagos hotel hall decked out with rainbow flags. A public backlash culminated in members being beaten as they left church. Macaulay fled to the UK after death threats.
