Stop Nigeria's "Jail the Gays" bill

Published: November 16, 2012

TO: President Jonathan of Nigeria

I’m joining with leaders across Nigeria to ask you to protect your own citizens by vetoing the anti-gay bill when it crosses your desk. It is a distraction from the serious problems facing all Nigerians.

The time to stop it and respect human rights is now.


At any moment, Nigeria’s parliament could pass one of the harshest anti-gay laws the world has ever seen.

    10 years in prison for living with someone of the same sex
    10 years in prison for supporting the idea of a pride march
    14 years in prison for trying to have a wedding

All Out is working closely with the following partner organisations in Nigeria:
Changing Attitude Nigeria, Improved Youth Health Initiative, Initiative for Advancement of Humanity, International Center for Advocacy on Right to Health, Sexual Minorities Against AIDS in Nigeria, The Initiative for Equal Rights, The Initiative for Improved Male Health, Nigerian LGBTIs in the Diaspora Against Anti-Same Sex Laws.
