WATCH: A Recent Statistics On LGBT Community In Nigeria

“Socially, people have really discriminated because they felt emboldened,” Xeenarh Mohammed, the executive director of The Initiative for Equal Rights (TIERS) said.

A poll conducted by TIERs via NOI Polls surveyed 2,000 Nigerians across the country and demographic groups and found out that 39% of Nigerians accept that lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) Nigerians deserve equal access to public healthcare, housing and education.

Despite this positive indicator of tolerance, the survey also shows that 90% of Nigerians support the Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act (SSMPA).

TIERS is a registered non-profit organisation working to protect and promote the human rights of sexual minorities in Nigeria. The organisation also advocates for sexual health and rights of LGBTQ persons in Nigeria.
