Gay couples should cross Nigeria off the list of places to visit.
The biggest African economy reveals a dark pattern existing throughout the entire continent. Being gay remains the supreme taboo topic, and you could call yourself lucky not to end up behind bars or lynched by a tribal militia.
While most nations struggle to come to terms with the situation, Nigeria is one of the few that took a big leap backward. President Goodluck Jonathan recently signed into law the Same-Sex Marriage Prohibition Act. As a consequence, even a mild support towards the LGBT community grants you up to 14 years in jail.
A worrying poll revealed that more than 98% of the Nigerian population opposes the idea of same-sex relationships receiving any rights or protection. You could call Nigeria the most homophobic country in the world. However, that would make other nations jealous.
The next country on the list considers gays to be terrorists, and we are talking Europe!
