    Some Nigerians go abroad and receive sense. Some really do get influenced by their environment to be more tolerant, less prejudiced. But for many others, especially if they clutch their religiousness over there, this appears not to be so.

    Good but depressing. I don dey plan how to tell mumsy not to bug me on Sundays when I’m visiting. I’m just done pretending I’m somewhat okay with church whenever I’m in Lagos.

    Oh Chineke! Ihe n’ebe k n’ebekwa despite the civilization! They even carried the archaic mentality from 9ja to Yankee! I blame religion oh! Honestly, @duke, haven’t you saved enough money to get yourself an apartment be it a condo? Cos they’ll be abusing you emotional with so much scorn and hatred for ppl who are family. Nigerians will always be Nigerian! The part where the guy invited his parents for his wedding only to walk down the aisle with a man threw me on the floor, but I can’t do it. Rather I pray I hustle to get confidently handsome so I can be the man I wanna be. O diegwu really. Smh

    Why do you still go to that church if all it does is rile you up?

        It was easy to shut down marriage yarns but u r finding it hard to shut down ‘go to church’ yarns? Talk about setting rebellious priorities. Church is a forgone conclusion. Infact, if I go home, because of the incessant power outages, I send my phone to church on Sundays to be charged while I sit back at home.

        Leave sokoto – NO, Goan marry – NO, Let’s go to church – NO.

        She’s not someone that takes NO just like that so na to ease am into the big reveal.

    It’s sad really the way Nigerians react to homosexuality……..even a BRICK WALL is more compromising and tolerant than an average Nigerian.

    If only the same amount of energy can be deployed in condemning high and low level corruption, impeaching clueless governors like Fayose, challenging the economic ideology of the archaic Ngige.

    The more religious they are, the poorer they are. The more myopic they are, the smaller they become.

    Why do you continue to surround you self in such an environment? Why should you be in a liberal country and still subject yourself this horrid Draconian obsession that Nigerians seem to have with gays? Why are you still attending such a church?

    You won’t see me caught dead in any church that preaches so horribly abt gays, and I am in Nigeria, the most homophobic country on the planet. So why should someone who is in the USA, still have to subject themselves to such?

    I think the problem is Nigerians. Both gay and straight. We like to hold on to unnecessary chains and tie our selves down, for religion and culture. We are constantly worried abt what ppl will think. And that’s why Nigerian gay men have issues. If you constantly continue to subject your self to an environment where you are told that being gay is wrong, regardless of whether you agree or not, it has a subconscious effect on you.

    We should learn as ppl to walk away from environments that belittle who we are. You are contributing to the problem by being in such an environment.

    Nice piece. I have had the same urge in the past to stand up once in Church and say a piece of my mind. However I just stopped going to church. Maybe one day…

    “So my brethren, you have to be careful. Don’t go say anything to them or tell them they will go to hell. Don’t spite them. Don’t discriminate against them or say anything hateful to them. Just do your work and pray for them. May God deliver us.”
    I like how they are being forced by law to obey the teachings of Jesus Christ as in the Bible.

    The sad thing about ‘educated’ Nigerians is that we only swallow knowledge generated by others but fail to think for ourselves. That is why we have the academics amongst us that will reason no differently from someone who never attended secondary school let alone University. It is as if a limit or mental block has been placed to their understanding by religious beliefs.
    I feel if they lead the conversation on issues of homosexuality, many people will fall in line because knowing Nigerians, no one would want to be seen as uneducated.

    Oh church!!!
    I have to suffer it everyweek, not because I don’t believe in God but because of the stupidity of these pastors
    Now I don’t even bother arguing with my mum because it will result in different relations talking and ‘spitting’ on my head

      Did u not read his pilot entry? He did not say he’s writing the series for anybody’s vicarious sexual desires. He said he’s writing about his life overseas. That includes more things than sex. So no, dear, he’s not supposed to give you body counts.

    Na wah for most of us. Must his diary be filled with sexcapades? Is everything all about sex? Isn’t Love, sex and the city enough for us to get erotic with? However the @Kingbey’s kiss and tell series, most of us judged him for penning down that part of him.
    This is one of the best series written by duke so he will broaden our horizon on what’s happening in diaspora and I really learnt a lot from it. If y’all are keen to erotic entries, you can start your own so we enjoy the ride. shikina.

    Great piece Duke, some Nigerians move abroad and are able to overcome their homophobia, but soooo many have the homophobia so deeply encoded in their genetic makeup that nothing can change their views. Bloody hypocrites, they hate what a country stands for yet they fast and pray and spend millions to travel there as well as to remain there. Am so glad with the way the West rubs it in the faces of homophobes all day every day!
