Two Data Points From Nigeria

Two Nigerian bloggers comment on the news that the Nigerian government is to ban same-sex marriage.
 
First up is Trae, a young 22-year old Nigerian who spews forth with a depressing stream of homophobia and misogyny on his blog Trae Days.
 
At the other end of the spectrum is Tout Noir’s post in Afro Homo, who vents his frustration at the hypocrisy of certain aspects of Nigerian society.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
