Following the disturbing reports   http://wp.me/p1YdPM-3 from the October 31, 2011 public hearing in Abuja of the bill entitled  “An Act To Prohibit Marriage Between Persons Of Same Gender, Solemnization Of Same And For Other Matters Related Therewith”, 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 bill and condemn the homophobic atmosphere under which the public hearing was conducted.

The theme of the protest is Kiss Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia goodbye!   The group intends to officially submit our position paper http://wp.me/P1YdPM-I that was read at the public hearing in Abuja to the Nigerian Ambassador to UK and use the opportunity to express our concerns on the bill as Nigerian Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transsexuals and Intersex (LGBTI) living in United Kingdom.

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 to kiss Sodomy laws and other anti same-sex laws goodbye. International solidarity knows no borders, come one, come all! Solidarity forever!
