Guy Ruthlessly Beaten Because He’s Gay!!!

On Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2011, Rashidi Williams, a gay man, was working on his laptop in Lagos, When a gang of men beat him up earlier this year, the 25-year-old gay Nigerian was too afraid to report the attack to police or even his family. Doing so would only create more problems, he says, in this country where legislators are now seeking to criminalize gay marriage. Here in the megacity of Africa’s most populous nation, Williams says he doesn’t even know of any gays or lesbians who would want to get married given the added safety risks it would bring.
