Coping with family rejection is one of the ways LGBTQ+ Nigerians benefit from the support provided by volunteer counselors via the Qtalk app, which is supported by this site and by the St. Paul’s Foundation for International Reconciliation. Effiong, a 20-year-old Nigerian man, reached out on the Qtalk app to discuss the profound sense of abandonment he feels from his family due to his sexual orientation. In the session, Effiong courageously opened up about the emotional turmoil he experiences as a gay person in a society where acceptance is often elusive. In this article, Effiong’s real name is replaced with a pseudonym for his protection.
