Nomsa Buthelezi ‘s children being bullied over her s.e.xuality

TV personality Nomsa Buthelezi has opened up about the constant fat shaming and homophobia she experienced while trying to make it in an industry that refuses to give her a chance. The star, who married her wife in 2019, took to Instagram this week to offer encouragement to those who face bullying and are told they are not enough.

Have you ever been down but you keep smiling? I go through homophobic slurs almost daily but they never sat down with me and to know my sexuality is not a disease. In the industry, I keep on being told ‘you don’t look the part’, but they never gave me a chance. Kubuhlungu. Even those you call the family to spit on you.

She told those who were struggling to hold on to hope. Dear big girl, breath. Joy comes in the morning. Hold on. I’m proudly queer and I’m a big girl with talent. Being kind is free. Nomsa revealed her children had to develop a thick skin because of people bullying them over her s.e.xuality.

“My children and I have a very open relationship and we talk about everything. They understand my s.e.xuality. Yes, they were bullied at school but my children made the other children understand that ‘hey! If your mother has a husband, then my mother can have a wife and that’s that. Last year she took shots at some in the industry who were trying to drag her down.

“In this industry, one can make you feel inferior because they themselves are empty inside, shame souls. I’m Nomsa Buthelezi-Shezi. I’m content with myself and I don’t need to kiss your toes to make you like me,” she said.
