These are pictures I took at last Friday’s (March 7, 2014) protest in NYC against Nigeria’s draconian anti-LGBT law which carries prison sentences up to 14 years and has led to a brutal rise in attacks against LGBT people in Nigeria. More than 200 people attended as we demanded justice and accountability from the Nigerian government. The last picture is a picture of me taken by my dear friend atane, who also attended the rally.
Help spread the word, speak out say that #Istandwith9jaLGBT
I took these photos as part of my documentary photography project I am currently producing on LGBT African immigrants in the US.
