HIV and the NIGERIA GAY COMMUNITY  

Gay rights movement in Nigeria is heavily tied to HIV/AIDS Activism for many reasons, people do not know what being gay means until they are tested and found out their HIV status. When they find out their HIV status, they begin to meet other positive people and know there was an underground community for HIV positive gay men. Growing up there was nothing to show that gay people every existed, I never read books, no videos or anything to show queer people live in Nigeria.
