Members of the gay community in Nigeria are excitedly anticipating the release of a new film that people believe has captured the true experience of life for gay men in Nigeria. The new film ‘Walking With Shadows’ is based on an award-winning 2005 novel of the same name by Jude Dibia. The Initiative for Equal Rights [TIERs], a Lagos-based human rights organization, together with Oya Media, a Lagos/London based multimedia production company owned by Funmi Iyanda, teamed up to bring the idea to the screen. Iyanda is a popular Nigerian talk show host and blogger best known for her now defunct show ‘New Dawn With Funmi’ on which Nigerian-British LGBT human rights activist Bisi Alimi came out publicly as gay in 2004.
