Watch “Asylum – Bisi”, a short documentary film about Bisi Alimi, who was one of the first Nigerians to openly discuss his homosexuality on national television and as a result, put his life in danger.

Alimi  faced death threats, stiff opposition, physical and verbal attacks because of his sexual orientation and for his decision to be openly gay.

Now a gay right activist and works with HIV/AIDS programmes, Alimi found asylum in the United Kingdom. He’s documentary features  Funmi Iyanda and it has been shortlisted by American Public Broadcasting Service Online Film Festival 2013.

  1. Doesn’t matter who he is. If you are gay in Nigeria, stay in your closet. IT’S NOT “NATURAL”, and as long as MAJORITY of Nigerians think so, the best we can do for you is to “leave you alone” in your closet.

    WE HAVE GIVEN YOU THAT “ALLOW”, NOW YOU WANT “ALLOWANCE”….

  2. Dis is nt a nigerian am vry show of dat

  3. We don't appreciate such award in Nigeria. we are Africans, Men don't marry Men. Go to hell with your award… bullsh**t
