A Nigerian gay rights activist in exile

Michael Ighodaro is a Nigerian activist and LGBTQ rights advocate based in New York City. In response to the anti-gay law passed by President Goodluck Jonathan in Nigeria, Ighodaro helped organize a Global Day of Action in protest of this law. The protest in NYC was held on March 7th. Protests were also staged in front of Nigerian consulates in many cities all over the world. I spoke to Ighodaro before the March 7th protest.
