Rizi Xavier Timane, PhD, ASW, is a Nigerian-born transgender Life Coach, minister and certified grief counselor residing in Los Angeles, California. He is also a singer/songwriter and an actor who uses his music and movie productions as an outlet to promote Transgender inclusion, equality and affirmation. Rizi grew up in an extremely religious traditional Christian home in Africa and was subjected to multiple exorcisms and other reparative attempts by his family and the church to “pray the gay/trans away.” An Unspoken Compromise takes you through his journey of self-discovery and spiritual exploration including:Coming out as a trans boy at eight years oldIdentifying as a lesbian in homophobic AfricaTransitioning while facing societal and family rejectionThe religious persecution and bullying he has suffered all alongRizi’s message to the LGBT community is twofold. First, be your authentic self-it’s the only way to inner peace and happiness. Second, if you are in search of a relationship with God, a spiritual path to unconditional love and acceptance does exist for you free from condemnation and negative judgement.
