ABSTRACT

This research posed the question "How do homosexuals in Lagos live their lives knowing

who they are and navigating a life where they might not be accepted by its majority?" There

has been a lack of previous research on this topic, no community for the lesbian, gay,

bisexual, and transgender (LGBT), as well as homophobic attitudes within the Nigerian

society. Because of conflicting social identifiers (Is it possible for one to be both homosexual

and African?) and the non-existence of gay black voices, it is imperative to deconstruct the

ideals impeding a relationship between Nigerian homosexuals and the communities they are a

part of. I utilized qualitative in-depth interviewing techniques interviewing 7 Lagosians aged

20 and above who voluntary identified themselves as homosexual. The research revolved

around three specific questions designed to capture the whole research. A finding of the

research states that the participants disclosed that because of African stereotypes, gay

stereotypes, lack of a gay community, homophobia in the community, and perceptions of

blackness and masculinity's effect on gay Black men ... they live their lives with various

restrictions. In other words, homosexuals do not appear to be living their lives the way they

feel they ought to be living it. This work is important because a majority of the participants

stated they wished to live restriction-free lives. I recommend that this research should spur the

birth of a new arm of psychology specifically directed to helping denizens of the LGBTQ

community. They are not able to fully be themselves in their daily lives and often have to

assimilate to be accepted.
