My Sexuality is a Human Right

I have been gay all my life, well as far as I can imagine. I didn’t make myself this way, I have lived my lifestyle in such a way that it doesn’t affect anyone.

Since the anti-gay bill in Nigeria has been introduced, every LGBT person here now lives in fear of being the first victim of the witch-hunt; with the high level of ignorance, we never can vouch for what family members, co-workers, friends & neighbors might do, in fear of the 10-year jail term for abetting a same sex relationship.

For now the only thing that comes to my mind is run, but how many of us can run? The government should leave us alone. I hope human rights organizations and international bodies come to our aid. My sexuality is a human right.
