    I’m not sure if those in power cares. Nigeria cannot stop harboring homophobic people. Even some of the gays amongst us are homophobes,talk less of the heterosexuals,I just pray GOD changes the mind set of Nigerians cause most of the heterosexuals don’t see us a human.

    Wow this gave me braingasms! I think it was a privilege that you got to attend this PP and be surrounded by such intelligent minds.

    I feel what Nigerians need is sound orientation like this! Most Nigerians actually aren’t homophobic in the actual sense they are just unexposed and ill informed. And you can’t blame them really, acquiring knowledge here is such a chore. Our education system is derelict and our society doesn’t even give one the opportunity to be “cultured “. Our idea of culture is primitive, we forget that culture is constantly evolving and progressing. American culture a century ago isn’t the same culture they have. While we over here kid ourselves into thinking that we still maintain the cultural norms and values of our forefathers especially when homosexuality is involved. But really how do you expect Nigerians to be enlightened when they are bombarded with songs about sharing the gala and the booze.

    We have a long way to go but this looks promising and reassuring.

    Meanwhile can someone tell Elnathan to try and spend at least 10mins in the shower. Haba

    Wow! This was exhaustively educating, just when you think you’ve seen and heard it all, this avalanché of brilliant minds fall and give way to shiny new paths I never considered could lead to the highways too. This ministry should fast spread to our Universities and Sec. Schools biko, let’s forget the battle with the older generation so that we might win the war with our younger ones.

    PP did the mainstream media report this event? It wouldn’t do much good if the message is only getting to the lgbt community and very few straight people.

      I was about asking the same question.

      Hopefully in the future programmes like this will make front page news.

      I don’t think the main focus should be hinged on how much mainstream coverage the program got or gets.
      Focus should be on “education/sensitisation and reorientation”. A lot of us don’t even know ourselves yet, or reached a significant level of acceptance. The key word is growth. Lets all grow with pace.
      Let focus on educating ourselfes, and once that is done, we can slowly educate others without seeming like we are forcing our “agenda” down their throats. Rome wasn’t built in a day.#OneStepAtATime.

      I dont know about the coverage, Kenny, but you’re right. This is the virgin edition though. Hopefully, with subsequent events, it can get wider and bigger

    I would have given an arm to be @ this event! Who knew Prof Odinkalu was this open-minded?! Prof Odinkalu has been a family friend since my childhood, the man is indeed admirable and … Wait for this! Iheoma Obibi is his wife, she’s a die hard femininst and in true fashion maintains her maiden name even while married! I totally adore that couple! They are like brother and sister rather than husband and wife … Its so heartwarming that these issues can be discussed so openly in Nigeria, kudos to the Tiers team, you guys are doing a fantastic job!!! Posterity shall honour you …

    1st of all Wana Wana of life was there? **hot tears**

    Mr Sogunro, Elnathan John and the lovely Iheoma Obibi gave me major braingasm.
    Chia! I wish! I wish!! I wish ooooo!!! I was there.
    I swear I thought Iheoma Obibi is a young lady. Heard her on the radio one time, on inspiration fm’s sharing life’s issues. She sounded do young, fresh and very exposed (well she was promoting intimate pleasures). I never knew there was a sex toy shop in naija until that program.
    Love love everything I read in this piece.

    It’s still hard to feel hopeful about anything LGBT related in Nigeria

      One step at a time bro. By the way Google prof. Odinkalu and u would know how big a deal this is.

      It’s a gradual process. We will definitely get there.
