I am curious. Is there any gay rights movement or activists in Nigeria?

Being african myself, i find this not only dispicable but it's a darn shame.I always say, africans , of all people should no better about hate, discrimination and prejudice.It's just hypocrisy on our part.

Atleast in Botswana where i'm from, they pretty much ignore us and pretend we don't exist even though Gaborone city is so f**king gay.

Some countries are more tolerant than others of homosexuality. Former french and belgian colonies more so. In Burundi, where I grew up and Rwanda (to an extent) folks have a level of respect for trans people that is unmatched anywhere else I've been. This can be attributed to the fact most people didn't fully embrace the western-imported religious beliefs (in fact they were fiercely rejected in the 19th century in sub saharan Africa), but then again this theory has never been proven to be true. Lots of other facts could be involved. Just my two cents.

Is this surprising at all?
