In 2014, the former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan signed into law the anti-gay bill that criminalises gay relationships.

The bill, which contains penalties of up to 14 years in prison and bans gay marriage, same-sex “amorous relationships” and membership of gay rights groups, was passed by the national assembly in May 2013 but Jonathan had delayed signing it into law.

Despite the stipulated punishment of a 14-years jail term, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT+) community continues to thrive underground.

According to statistics provided by Google Trends for 2019, South-East states rank high among the states searching for gay porn in Nigeria and is closely followed by south-south states.
