NBC and Awwalu Salihu doesn’t know what they are talking about, since they don’t know the difference to be transgender and to be gay. You can be transgender and be straight – and you can be transgender and bisexual and you can be transgender and gay.

Mr Awwalu Salihu read and learn before you take decisions of something you clearly haven’t any knowledge about.

Transgender people experience a mismatch between their gender identity or gender expression and their assigned sex.
