VIDEO REPORT: Fighting Back in New York Against Nigeria’s New Anti-Gay Law

BY KELLY COGSWELL AND HARRIET HIRSHORN | Anti-gay laws are sweeping across Africa, from Nigeria to Uganda. On March 7, as part of a Global Day of Action, hundreds of LGBT Africans and their allies protested outside the Consulate General of Nigeria in New York, encouraging Americans to get involved.

    Shame on American Evangelicals for their anti-LGBT propaganda campaign in Uganda that led to this shameful and unjust law that persecutes people. PLEASE Help LGBT Ugandans flee the country here: http://www.gofundme.com/Uganda-LGBT-Fund
