His story comes from No Strings, which provides a voice for LGBT Nigerians who are often harassed and persecuted by their homophobic fellow citizens and Nigeria’s anti-gay laws.
Teflondon (not real name) was outed by his then lover after an angry display at his lover’s house, then was arrested and held in a cell for several days.
His parents bailed him out, but then began acting distant from him, showing no interest in him and no trust. Ever since then, he has been trying to find his balance again and to understand life from a different perspective.
