Letoya has been in the spotlight in the headlines ever since she announced that she had found love in the arms of another woman, Joburg businesswoman Lebo Keswa.
Generations: The Legacy actress, Letoya Makhene has said that it is great to be lesbian because her partner, Lebo Keswa is exceptional in bed.
While her family has accepted her relationship and supported her 100 percent, Letoya revealed that she still gets plenty of negative attention and slurs because of her lesbian relationship.
Most of the negative attention seems to stem from homophobic men who question why she decided to ditch men and have a relationship with another woman.
Letoya revealed that she has been receiving dozens of DMs from men questioning why she chose to be a lesbian.
Fed up with the constant pestering and negative energy, the actress took to social media to issue an unequivocal statement explaining her relationship status as well as making it clear that she relishes being lesbian with her partner, Lebo
“Let’s just get this out of the way once and for all please, and hopefully I won’t be asked this question again. To all the men who keep asking me why her? What do I see in her? Nywe nywe nywe … here’s my answer … KUKU YA HAE E MONATE (she’s great in bed.)”
Unsurprisingly, there were mixed reactions to the post with some people applauding the actress for living life on her own terms. Others, however, were critical of the relationship with some choosing to be abusive.
In a previous Instagram post, Lerato explained that she is unbothered by the negative energy and the homophobic slurs because her father and her children had accepted Lebo.
“My biggest fear was telling my dad and my children that mommy is in love with a woman. I was afraid of hurting them. Thank you, daddy, for the blessing you gave us. Yours and God’s is the only blessing that matters,”
Describing how she reconciles her relationship with her faith in God, Letoya added,
“I stood before my God and asked Him if this was a joke. I also reminded Him that I remember being very specific in my requests. He gave me 2 choices. One was to receive His gift of love as is, the other was to walk away and lose myself bit by bit to men who will never really understand or honour me because of the power that I possess through the gifts that He has given me.”
