The Nigerian Senate  with a full majority on Tuesday Dec 29, 2011 voted in support of the  bill entitled “An Act To Prohibit Marriage Between Persons Of Same Gender, Solemnization Of Same And For Other Matters Related Therewith” . This was inspite of the  disturbing report  from the October 31, 2011 public hearing in Abuja of the bill.  The independent campaign group, Nigerian LGBTI in Diaspora Against Anti Same Sex Laws will hold a protest in front of the Nigerian embassy against the passage of the bill and condemn the homophobic atmosphere under which the public hearing was conducted. Enough is Enough, we want our human rights!

The theme of the protest is ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Kiss Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia goodbye! The group intends to officially submit our position paper  that was read at the public hearing in Abuja to the Nigerian Ambassador to USA and use the opportunity to express our concerns on the bill as Nigerian Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transsexuals and Intersex (LGBTI) living in United States of America.

Also, outside the embassy, Nigerian LGBTI and allies will hold hands, hug and kiss as a gesture of kissing Sodomy laws goodbye. Come and join us, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Let us together kiss Sodomy laws and other anti same-sex laws goodbye. International solidarity knows no borders, come one, come all! Solidarity forever!
