LGBTs are human beings first’ says Olumide Makanjuola, watch the sixth episode of Untold Fact]

Displaying Untold Facts.jpg



Joining the host were Olumide Makanjuola, sexual health and rights advocate, who through his activism has engaged international policymakers and stakeholders, and Omolara Oriye, a lawyer, writer, human rights advocate and feminist.
Speaking on the constitutional rights of LGBTs in Nigeria to get legal justice, Olumide argued that "What the law says is human and if you are going to seek redress, you should seek redress from that perspective because, first, you're a human being - regardless of anything that comes with your identity, orientation - the court is going to see you as a human being not as a gay person or bisexual man/woman."
Omolara, on her part, pointed out that "The idea is that there is no protection for LGBTIs in Nigeria. But you don't have to seek redress in a Nigerian court. You can go to ECOWAS court. You can go as far as you like."
