Nigerian LGBT activist, Haryo Ormide, has taken to his social media page to inform his fans, that he will be the first Nigerian to openly get married as a gay.
In an Instagram post, Haryo, said he has made research as an activist and being gay is not a curse, as it is a fascinating lifestyle. According to Haryo, he sees hope in Nigeria approving the rights of LGBT in the country as he called on Nigerians to stop being homophobic, with a tag, ‘LGBT marriage must be approved and signed in Nigeria’.
“I have made research as an activist, being gay is not a curse it is a fascinating lifestyle that ranges from glory to glory. Why would you be scared in your fathers land being gay? I think Nigeria should stop being homophobic, we are in a modernized world, despite the hatred, Nigeria is still the number 1 that has the most populace and popular LGTB.” Haryo wrote.
Moreover, in Nigeria, there is a strong embargo on LGTB related activities as the country kicks against such acts, with strong resistance and laws.
