London based Nigerian gay and LGBT activist, Bisi Alimi, has married his British lover, Anthony. The two lovers, who have been dating for some years, got married on Saturday in England.
Alimi, who expressed his excitement on social media, said, “In the presence of friends and family from around the world, Anthony and I will say ‘I Do’. But we remember places in the world where love is (a) crime.” The rights activist posted the message on his Twitter handle on Saturday, displaying a picture of him and Anthony.
In Nigeria, a law against same-sex relationship/marriage stipulates a 14-year jail term for offenders.
