According to source, Pamela had announced on her social media page that her wedding will take place on the 23rd of June, 2018.
In 2011, Pamel aleft everyone including friends and Family in shocked when she openly declared that she is a lesbian. She used to be married to a man.
Her sexual orientation had been hidden from her family for years, she hadn't discussed it with either her family or fiance - even before she walked down the aisle with him. She thought:
“It would be nice to keep mum about it, forget about my sexual orientation as lesbian and move on with marriage”: to seek change.But things didn't turn out the way she had planned
“My pain became more than my fear. I came out because I needed to be free from pain, from telling my loved ones lies, from living a double life (as lesbian and a married woman). The burden was just too heavy to bear,” she said with a serious look that mirrors nothing but sincerity.
“When I came out, I came out to free myself. I didn’t come out because I wanted to be an activist or because I wanted to prove a point. It was really about me.”
Pamela Adie is from a christian home as raised by a Catholic parents in the city of Calabar, Nigeria. She's from Obudu in Cross River state.
She left for the United states when she was 17 years old, where she earned a degree in Bachelor of Business Administration, with a minor in Personal and Proffessional Communication.
She says she had her first same sex relationship even before she travelled abroad and have also been in the same sex relationship for years. She had thought her marriage would save her from being lesbian but it never did.
“Even before I came out, I was already in a same-sex relationship but I never saw myself as lesbian. I hadn’t come out to myself and I always thought that when I get married it will somehow go away. That’s one of the reasons I eventually got married.”
“At the end of the day, it didn’t go away because it’s not something that goes away. Your sexual orientation is part of who you are and it’s not a choice”.
After struggling to fit in for two years she couldn’t continue acting straight, she couldn’t put her sexual orientation behind her despite her marriage to a wonderful man.
“My ex-husband is a great guy. He didn’t deserve to be lied to. I felt really bad. For me coming out, and leaving the marriage was really for him so that he can move on and find someone that can give him what he really wants,” she said.
“My parents didn’t like that I am lesbian. They were angry. My mum was more vocal than my dad, though. My dad was more loving but the tension between my mum and I was thick. She was of the opinion that I was possessed and that there was something wrong with me. So it created a tension in the house,” she told YNaija in a past interview earlier this year.
“I don’t have that issue with my father. It’s still the same till today. He’s still the one I talk to the most. My mum hasn’t come to a place of acceptance as of this point. She’s still struggling with my sexual orientation.”
