What it’s like being Gay in Nigeria | Watch



Nigeria, as a conservative society, is explicitly homophobic.

We’ve had mob killings, people fished out their homes and beaten, kidnappings and so on.

Vice UK came over to Nigeria to hear gay people tell their experience as gay men living in Nigeria.

    Nigeria in general is a very sexually repressed country. It’s just depressing.

      And the country that’s not sexually repressed, what good has come out of it? The U.S that’s not sexually repressed, it’s done more damage than good. Americans are highly depressed, suicidal and have so many issues. The society particularly the U.S has become very hypersexualized that sex means nothing anymore.

      Nigerians must be having sex to have one of the highest population in the world. Sex is one of those things that whether you talk about it or not, folks are doing it. FOlks protect yourselves, I don’t need to know what you do sexually.

      Your argument is to use the US…

      Wait, this blog that we’re visiting now, is it the server abi the devices we use to access it…which one did our sexually repressed country bring us. Abeg, please ehn this is not a laughing matter.

      Nigerians are also very depressed and suicidal. What else automatically makes us abuse maids and has us quick to burn someone who stole food?

      Why do some nigerians try their most to belong. Always trying to fake elitism by sanctioning whatever the west says is right. God says he hates homo but you would rather follow the white mans who historically fought to nip homosexuality in the bud but lost the battle. Follow follow. Nigerians might be a lot of bad things but im proud of our stance on homo. Its an abnormality, anyone with half a brain would know that. We would not accept it. The west did not suddenly develop a conscience of understanding and accetance of homo. Homosexually came and conqured and took over the west. The same will not happen here. There is no place for it here.

      Mary nigeria is not at all sexually repressed. Just one night with a strong nigerian man will liberate you from your views on same sex madness.

      Well, I used the U.S as an example because it’s often used as a yardstick, and other countries like to emulate us. The previous commentator said, the sexually repressed country is depressing and I’m like it’s depressing here too even with all the sexual freeedom. Basically, we all got issues.

    Well, in as much as I don’t understand it but I respect every individual with their choices. I do think Nigeria needs to remove the ban on gays. They shouldn’t encourage it but put certain restriction if need be.

    Personallly, I think being gay is abnormal and embracing it is like allowing a mad relative or friend roam freely without help.

    Its funny how Africans are selective of what they would and would not accept from the West. The same West brought you Christianity to enslave you,. Just to inform you Homosexuality was prevalent in Africa way before the Europeans came to Colonise and confuse you.

    Here we go again African history according to whites. Where did you read that African had homosexuality, hummm? Did your grandparents ever tell you that such a thing existed. Africa has rich culture and traditions, homosexuality was not one of the things passed down ok, thats a lie from the west to get you to succumb. And yes any wish person takes the good and leaves the bad behind. after all when you are eating fruit you use your common sense to peel off the inedible parts and throw away the seeds. you also dont swallow a fish with all its bones. Receive sense follow follow. The west has taken over your ability to reason for yourself, yeye lost fowl.. Take a consensus across nigeria and see how many people want Homosexuality legalised. We dont want it here ok.

      Sexual orientation is not learnt neither is it taught, Going back in African History King Mwangwa of Uganda was Gay also Shaka Zulu one of the fiercest African warrior kings was rumoured to be Gay. We have countless cave art depicting men same sex sexual activity amongst Africans. Europeans who brought you Christianity believed these acts to be beastly hence it was frowned upon and discouraged just like in their Bible. The sexual liberation happening in the West today is due largely to them Discarding their Christian ideology a religion birth by them and brought to you to enslave you.
