Speaking to TshishaLIVE about the reactions on his dress, the influencer said:

“This season I am going hard! I want all my looks to change the idea of body comfortability and to evoke reactions. With yesterday’s outfit, I got the perfect reaction I was looking for… I deliberately made myself the sacrificial lamb in order to prove a point!

“Many males have done something similar for example Riky Rick in a video dancing in his underwear and robe. Everyone had mixed reactions to that video but because he was straight he could get away with it and perform in his underwear. With me on the other hand, that picture provoked homophobia, bullying and body shaming maybe because of my age or my sexuality. We live in the 21st Century where we have the right to express ourselves freely.”

“I want to be the icon young gays look up to and draw inspiration from. I want to prove to a point we still live in a sad world where you need to look ‘straight’ and not wear makeup or express yourself femininely to be in a decision-making boardroom meeting. It needs to change and I want to make that change. I want to become a style icon and that requires some bold moves.” Lasizwe said.
