A Nigerian LGBTQ right advocate, Pamela Adie, is set to release the first-ever pro-lesbian movie in Nigeria titled ‘Ife’. The story revolves around two lesbian partners, Ife and Adaora, who fell in love and struggled through the challenges of being in a same-sex relationship in Nigeria. The movie directed by Uyai Ikpe-Etim is set to change the narrative and the representation of LGBT (Lesbians, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer) in Nollywood. The producer, Pamela Adie, told PREMIUM TIMES that the portrayal of same-sex relations in Nollywood is not the reality of everybody and their stories, especially lesbians, need to be told. “We only see stories about LGBT people that condemn us, to say that we are people to be beaten, sometimes even killed.
