Human Rights Watch notes the grim situation for LGBT in Nigeria

Human Rights watch has a scathing report on the results of the "anti-gay marriage law" in Nigeria, here. It was circulated on Facebook by Center Global today.

Despite the nomenclature stressing marriage, the law (like Russia) prohibits promotion of gay organizations or rights.  It also seems to prohibit assembling of people for homosexual encounters.  (In the US, some states like Virginia, used to have such laws.)

Nigeria has been a source of some asylum seekers, whose processing is still somewhat complicated legally and a bit of a mystery with the public, something I have covered a lot on Wordpress recently.
