A groundbreaking new film is currently in production that elevates the life and story of the first and only man to publicly come out in Nigeria. Bisi Alimi made history when he publicly came out as a gay man on Funmi Iyanda’s popular show "New Dawn" in 2004. The backlash, however, was extreme, with the show being cancelled and Alimi facing public, violent attacks for years.
Head here to visit the project's Kickstarter and check out an interview with director Joe Cohen.
