Same-Sex Wedding As Nigerian Parliament Reviews Controversial Same-Sex Marriage Bill



Filed under : Africa

Here’s some pictures of a gay wedding that took place in Nigeria….

Against the backdrop of the gay wedding is the controversial Same Gender Marriage Prohibition Bill. The National Assembly (Nigerian parliament) began debating the latest version of the Same Gender Marriage Prohibition Bill in November.

The Same Gender Marriage Prohibition Bill, spear-headed by Senator Domingo Obende, imposes sanctions on persons who enter a ‘same gender marriage contract.‘  This is defined as the ‘coming together of persons of the same sex with the purpose of living together as husband and wife or for other purposes of same sex relationship.’

Gay couples can be convicted to serve three years imprisonment. Individuals or groups that ‘witness’, ‘abet‘ or ‘aid‘ such a relationship also risk a fine and/or five years imprisonment. Most high-ranking officials have voiced their approval of the bill, signalling it is likely to pass.

Mr & Mr….

“Homosexual and lesbian practices are considered offensive to public morality in Nigeria. The… bill is crucial to our national development because it seeks to protect the traditional family, which is the fundamental unit of society, especially in our country,” said the influential newspaper, ThisDay, in its editorial on 10 November. “It will be difficult to import practices and lifestyles which are alien to our country and the majority of our people.”

Speak on it….
