Mass Arrest of Dozens of Gay Men in Nigeria

The men were arrested at a private party in a Lagos hotel, where attendees were offered counselling and testing for the virus which causes Aids, said Bisi Alimi, a Nigerian lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) activist. Homosexuality, gay marriage, gay groups and displays of same-sex affection are illegal in Nigeria
