Another Gay Guy In Nigeria.
this, Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2011 photo. Rashidi Williams, a gay man,
works on his laptop in Lagos, Nigeria. When a gang of men beat up
Rashidi Williams earlier this year, the 25-year-old gay Nigerian was too
afraid to report the attack to police or even his family. Doing so
would only create more problems, he says, in this country where
legislators are now seeking to criminalize gay marriage. Here in the
megacity of Africa’s most populous nation, Williams says he doesn’t even
know of any gays or lesbians who would want to get married given the
added safety risks it would bring. (AP Photo/Sunday Alamba).
