Activist woman’s worry: More gay Nigerians marry women


A local activis who is currently working with a women’s rights organization in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, says she is seeing an increasing problem of gay men marrying women. She discussed the issue in a recent conversation with NoStringsNG, which she contacted for help in dealing with the problem. Many women who come to her for counseling and support are married to gay men who deceived them into marriage, the activist said. The women who reach out to her for help are aggrieved and devastated upon finding out that their husbands are gay, she said: “A lot of women come to me all the time complaining that their husbands have been having affairs with other men. They are mostly confused, bitter, disappointed and do not know what to do. Many of them often consider divorce as an option. But making that decision is often a hard one for them.”
