A new film follows the life of Bisi Alimi, the first man to publicly come out as a gay in Nigeria, a country where in certain situations gay men can be put death. Alimi came out on a television show called New Dawn and as a result the show was canceled amid public outcry. While the show went dark, Alimi had to face the public himself. He was violently attacked for years, but eventually fled to the UK seeking asylum.

The film, The Boy From Mushin hopes to highlight this courageous man, but the director needs your help to finish the project. Click here to support their Kickstarter.
