AFROBEAT AND GAY RIGHTS

AFROBEAT AND GAY RIGHTS
Social media and corporations goes red for gay rights. U.S. Supreme Court might give the nod for gay marriage.
What does the Afrobeat King think? He spoke with Windy City Times CHIcago.
WCT: Speaking of oppression, how are gay people treated in Nigeria that you have noticed recently?
Femi Kuti: There are gay people here but it is not an open fact. I think there is a law against it but there are many gay people here. Nobody really talks about it.
WCT: So is gay society very underground?
Femi Kuti: I wouldn’t say underground, but gay people don’t flaunt it here. Everybody may know when there is a gay or lesbian person around, but it is not their business. The problem was that they wanted an open marriage but it is very conservative and religious here. Religious people are very adamant against it. Many of us have gay friends and people like me don’t care. There are many fanatics that do and consider it taboo. They have the power sometimes.Image
