Uyaiedu Ikpe-Etim, a Nigerian lesbian filmmaker and producer, recounted how she felt when her brother said gay people should be executed.
She was still in the closet, according to Ikpe-Etim, when her brother said this.
“I just randomly remembered something horrible. It was 2013, just before the SSMPA was signed into law. My brother and I were arguing about it. Then, my brother said to me (a closeted lesbian): “left to me oh, I think gay people should be killed”. ?m?. I think I died that day” she tweeted.
