Should queer Nigerians celebrate LGBTQ Pride Month?

Each year, the month of June is marked as “Pride Month”, a time when LGBTQ people all over the world partake in Pride marches and attend events — all aimed at bolstering support and self-acceptance for LGBTQ people. It is also a time when international brands and companies lend their support to queer people by splashing the “rainbow color” across their social media graphics. In Nigeria, a lot of queer people—especially on social media—take particular interest and reverence in the month of June. Queer events, though very much underground, do take place across thriving metropolitan cities within Nigeria, which leads me to the question: Should queer Nigerians celebrate LGBT Pride events?
