Richard Branson opposes the new anti-gay law in Nigeria


Richard Branson, C.E.O of Virigin Group of companies took to his blog yesterday to show his opposition to the newly passed same sex marriage bill.

Too sad to comprehend that Nigeria are passing a law in this day and age to put gay people in prison just for being gay.
The Prohibition of Same-Sex Marriage Bill
passed through Nigeria’s Senate unopposed last week. It means gay couples entering into either marriage or cohabitation will be jailed for up to 14 years. Even people “witnessing” or “abetting” gay relationships could be punished under this sad, repressive and cruel law.
Like everyone else in society, gay people have an enormous amount to offer and Nigeria should embrace them not prosecute them.
All of us with influence in Nigeria must do what we can to stop this cruel law. I would urge educated Nigerians all over the world to do what they can to help fight this discrimination.
