You alone can tell how it feels: If some cops walk up to you, belt-lift you into their revving car, and ferry you down to a forensic lab where they turn you arse-up while a guy digs a probe in your shit-canal, spins it for a couple of minutes, and then asks you to wait as he goes into another room. The lab rat comes back with a test tube in one hand, and in the other a result sheet where they check off your name as gay.

The U.K, for instance, might not be as weird as Kenya, though. But the British Home Affairs will ask you to produce your sex tapes and other evidence to prove you aren’t just a smart ass.

Nigeria is one of the over 70 countries of the world that maintain a hardline on homosexual tendencies. Same-sex relation attracts 14 years’ imprisonment in Nigeria.
