On this episode of the Queercity podcast, we would be experiencing what the reality of speaking for LGBT+ rights in Nigeria is for Nigeria's own Chude Jideonwo. Chude is known for his active amplification of minorities issues with his big show #WithChude, where he has also created space to help bring Queer persons' narratives safely to the mainstream media. 

    Chude speaks of how empathy could be an approach to fighting for the rights of sexual minorities, and to furtherly engaging violently oppressive systems. Behind the scenes packing and Bisi Alimi's appearance on “The Dawn” in 2004,  and the interview with Faraphina magazine

    Who killed 19 years old John in Lagos ?

    Who killed 19 years old John in Lagos ?

    Episode Summary 
    In the early days of July 2021, A 19 years old gay boy named John after meeting a supposed gay man online was kidnapped in Igando, Lagos. This episode of Queercity podcast seeks to understand the situations surrounding the kidnapping and death of 19 years old gay John. QueerNerd @OKTimileyin  would guide this narrative with the help of John's partner, John's Friend and another community member. John didn't deserve to die for being gay, or the horror of him bleeding to death after his parents paid 60,000 naira ransom. It's over 2 weeks since his death and burial, and we can't stop asking if his violator would ever get persecuted ? or this is just another "random gay gist".

    HIV stigmatization amongst Nigerian Gay men with Raldie Young

    HIV stigmatization amongst Nigerian Gay men with Raldie Young

     HIV programming has been at the core of LGBTIQ activism in Nigeria, just like the United States of America. Reinstating that Nigerian Queer lives matter has always had a kind of entry attached to the HIV advocacy projects. Even Notable Gay men like Elton John have their lives dedicated to fighting the virus with projects extending to Nigeria and handled by numerous NGOs. Sadly, Gay men across the world are still far behind when it comes to erasing the stigma surrounding the virus, most especially in Nigeria, where HIV status amongst gay men is a determinant of how much socialization and sexuality one would experience. For an already marginalized community, I (OKTimileyin) spoke with Raldie Young of The "We no get name" podcast on "HIV stigmatization amongst Nigerian Gay men with Raldie Young".

    Did Allah make sexuality innate in Islam: A crossover episode with Ynaija Non-Binary Blog

    Did Allah make sexuality innate in Islam: A crossover episode with Ynaija Non-Binary Blog

    Ramadan has just ended few weeks ago and it was indeed another time for Muslim folks around the world to find compassion, empathy and humility, most especially towards their fellow Muslims. This does not exclude Queer Muslims who are Nigerian or are in other West African countries, but for most queer Muslims in these part of the world, there is a huge wall of interpretation, and cherry picking between sexuality and faith. On this episode of the podcast, We would be having a crossover chat with Ynaija Non-Binary Blog and i will be joined by Ado Aminu to discuss the innateness of sexuality in Islam, religious capitalism and women and queer folks as it's victim.
