Protest rally against Nigeria’s Anti-LGBT Law.

Love Not Hate!

Date-    Thursday 20 February, 2014

Time-    3:00pm-6:00pm

Venue- Nigeria House, 9 Northumberland Avenue, London WC2N 5BX

Theme- Love Not Hate

Nigerian LGBTIs in Diaspora Against Anti Same Sex Laws will hold a rally on Thursday, 20th February, 2014 outside Nigerian High Commission, London, to protest the Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act signed into law by President Goodluck Jonathan.

We will come together to say No to this atrocious law and its blatant violation of our human rights.  We will also deliver a protest letter to the Nigerian High Commissioner.

In the spirit of Love that February is famous for, we shall host a kissing spree outside the embassy as we say Yes to Love and No to Hate. Nigerian LGBTIs and allies will hold hands, hug and kiss outside the embassy.

Join us, invite friends and LGBTI allies to kiss Sodomy laws and other anti same-sex laws goodbye. International solidarity knows no borders.

Join us in solidarity. Love Not Hate!

    I’m interested in getting involved with fighting this injustice. I live close to our consulate in Atlanta (USA).

    I want to help build solidarity, but I have no idea how to summon the LGBT Nigerians in this region.
