Rashidi Williams, a gay man, works on his laptop in Lagos, Nigeria. When a gang of men beat him up 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.
Cheap publicity? He "wants more beating"?
Homosexuals are suddenly not deserving of safety?
I think Sugabelly wrote something last year about how homosexuality was actually prevalent in "the days of our forefathers".
Live and let live, people.
