Nigerian gay preacher, Jide Macaulay, is set to be ordained an Anglican priest in the Church of England in June this year.
Macaulay was reported to have left Nigeria some years back after a failed attempt to set up a gay church, House of Rainbow.
The 53-year-old shared news of his planned ordination on social media.
He wrote: “It is a delight to share this news, I am to be ordained Anglican Priest in the Church of England in June 2019. ‘Wait on the Lord, be of Good courage and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait I say, on the Lord’ Psalm 27:14.”
