Awwwwwwwwh! There's always something beautiful about 'grey' -perhaps it's in the love that has stood the test of time.

 

PS

I initially had the 'hahaha' ready then the photos loaded. This has to be a sign for something... a positive omen for sure!

Love is always an undeniable look. May God give Nigeria powerful men like the bishop who support queers.
