Nigeria: growing up gay

Afrohomo publishes a series of posts on growing up gay in Nigeria. “I started this blog to bear witness to the gay African experience. Growing up gay in Nigeria was lonely, bewildering and painful. I did not know anyone like me. I thought I was the only one in the world that struggled with attraction to the same sex. Thankfully, I was very wrong.”
