A Nigerian Edafe Okporo, 28, has shared his story with Yahoo news.

The 28-year old who fled to the U.S after his life was endangered due to being a homosexual, opened up on all he had to pass through while he was living in Nigeria.

“It was not safe for me to live in Nigeria anymore,” he tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “I had to flee.” Okporo’s sexuality first became an issue in his community when his parents sent him to an all-boys secondary school.

“I behaved kind of feminine sometimes and they wanted me to experience how it is to be masculine,” he remembers of his family’s reasoning. While at school, he had his first sexual experience with one of his classmates.

“It was consensual, but because the guy was from a Muslim family, he said it wasn’t consensual,” he said. Okporo was suspended for two weeks, which is how his family first learned he was gay.

Edafe also talked about his parents who treid to “cure” him by taking him to a practitioner of traditional African medicine. “They cut some marks on my stomach about one inch long in about 25 different places,” he remembers. .

“They tried to put some medicine and say they were curing me of being gay.” Okporo was attacked on his birthday on July 23, 2016. “I was attacked by members of the community. .

They dragged me out, they beat me up, they were saying that
