Nigeria: House Votes to Ban Marriage Equality

Written by scott on June 5th, 2013

Nigeria MapAfrica continues to lead in regressive legislation on gays and gay marriage. From AllAfrica:

Nigeria’s House of Representatives has approved a bill that would outlaw same-sex marriage. The bill passed Thursday sets prison terms of up to 14 years for anyone who enters into a gay union. It also outlaws gay organizations and the “public show of a same-sex amorous relationship.”

Shades of the South and interracial marriage up until the 1960’s… get married, go to jail.
