Nigeria: being gay and fear

Nigerian blogger, AfroHomo continues his memories of growing up gay in Nigeria. This post is on “fear”…….”In my nightmare, I am walking down a Lagos street and street hoodlums attack me with sticks and blows. Finally, they put a tire around me, douse me with gasoline and set me on fire. My mum runs towards me in tears, too late to save me from the flames.”
