The daughter of Cameroon’s president,Paul Biya has said she hopes that her coming out as a lesbian can help change the law banning same-sex relations in her country.

Brenda Biya told the Le Parisien newspaper that there were many people in her situation and she hoped to inspire them.

The 27 year old shared an image of her kissing another woman last week, sparking mixed reactions in Cameroon.

In the interview with France’s Le Parisien, she said she had not informed anyone in her family before publishing the post.

Paul Biya, 91, has been Cameroon’s president since 1982 and is one of Africa’s longest-serving leaders.

Ms Biya said she had been with the Brazilian model for eight months and had already taken her to Cameroon three times without telling her family they were in a relationship.

She was happy to reveal her status, adding she wanted to give hope and “send love” to those suffering

Same-sex relations are against the law in Cameroon and are punishable by up to five years in prison.
