cross dressing

Cross dressing is becoming a common norm among Kenyan content creators although many Kenyans are yet to come to terms with the idea.

A number of male Kenyans who have  jumped in to the trend have been widely associated with LGBTQ community, individuals known to be sexually attracted to persons of their gender.

Those who are not for the cross dressing idea argue that the African culture and norms don’t allow that.

“Nguo za wanaume ni za wanaume na nguo za wanawake ni za wanawake,” one said.

The harsh criticism has however not deterred them from embracing the culture, that is also making them money, by landing them endorsement with brands.
