A Nigerian “Queer” man recently stormed the streets during the ongoing #endsars protest, to protest for the lives of Queer people.
The young guy, identified as Matthew Blaise, was seen holding a placard with the inscription – “Queer lives matter”, while explaining how he constantly gets harassed for looking femme.
He noted that it’s not a crime to be queer (Gay/lesbian), adding that he constantly get harassed by police officers for being queer and looking femme.
“Even in the #EndSars protest, Queer lives matter. Queer people are harassed, assaulted and killed by the Nigerian police for being Queer. I have been in that situation. A lot of my Queer siblings too” he wrote on Instagram.
