Is Aisha Hinds Gay, Lesbian, or Transgender?
Aisha is not like most ladies who spend countless hours trying to conform to the “ideal” feminine look; rather, she rocks a unique appearance. While you won’t find her with any hair, she also never fix nails, hers are always shorter than those of regular girls. Aisha believes that inner beauty is what that matters most and, she is happy with her looks. According to the actress, it is among the many things that set her apart.
Owing to her refusal to conform with what the society sees as the right feminine appearance, it has been circulated on several quarters that the actress is a transgender. To the best of our knowledge, this is not true.
With regards to her personal life, Aisha Hinds is a very private person who does not reveal a lot about her private affairs. She has never spoken about her private life with any man on an interview, neither has she shared pictures on her various social media accounts as others are known to do. Also, she has not shown any inclination towards getting married or spending the rest of her life with any man despite being well into her forties.
This stance by the actor led to recurring rumours that she is a lesbian. Although Aisha never came up in public to dismiss the rumours, it was squashed when she was spotted holding hands with a man at a mall on the 7th of June, way back in 2010. Even as we have been unable to confirm from the actress who the man is, the incident went a long way to shut down rumours about her being a lesbian.
Her Husband, Is She Married?
As stated earlier, Aisha Hinds is not married and it is difficult to tell if she is dating anyone. This doesn’t mean she’s a lesbian or transgender as many have come to believe. It has to do with the fact that the actress is more focused on her career rather than looking to have a relationship.
The black American actress has a height of 5 feet 7 inches which is about 170 cm or 1.70 meters. The height is perfect for her weight of around 66 kg.
