"Who Would Choose to Be LGBT and Nigerian?"
“Who Would Choose to Be LGBT and Nigerian?”, presented by Ifeoma Fafunwa of the Radcliffe Institute.
The speaker of course explains the scapegoating of the LGBT population in Nigeria as a result of corruption and poverty, especially exacerbated by falling oil prices.
The speaker plans to put this material in a stage play and independent film. About 14 minutes of the film is shown here. Interviews with most random people on the street show shocking tribalist indoctrination, disguised as religious. LGBT culture is viewed as “western” and anti-African. The film plans to focus on a particular family.
The film describes the anti-gay laws in Nigeria, as punishing even attempting to enable homosexuals to meet and congregate, as well as same-sex relations, oddly conflated with language about gay marriage.By Awinda - Own work, CC BY-SA 3.0, Link
