A married transgender woman in Lagos cried for help & said, “Please let me live my life in peace.”

In Lagos, a woman who had been married and had four children, but who now identified as transgender, begged for aid.

A woman who is a mother to four children. Mrs. Rossy, who only goes by her first name, asserts that her mother-in-law and other members of her husband’s family have threatened to take her children away from her and even threatened the life of Mrs. Rossy because she is a lesbian.

Mrs. Rossy claimed that the family of her husband were conspiring to take her children away from her because of her sexual orientation, and she accused her husband’s family of even threatening the lives of her children. Mrs. Rossy’s children were the subjects of her allegations.

In a statement that she provided to Nig24News, she pleaded with the authorities and people of influence to help her seek justice to prevent her in-laws from taking any action that will put her and her children’s lives in danger. She said that the ages of her children range from 16 to 7, and she said that her oldest child is 16 and this experience has had effect on her children, though her husband has been very supportive but she’s fear her Inlaw’s have so much power over him

The Nigerian government has some of the harshest regulations in all of Africa that target LGBTQ individuals. As a direct consequence of this, there was an uproar when the former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, signed a bill that criminalizes relationships between people of the same sexual orientation. By doing so, he defied western pressure over gay rights and provoked criticism from the United States of America.


The bill that prohibits gay marriage, same-sex “amorous relationships,” and membership in gay rights groups was approved by the National Assembly. The bill contains penalties of up to 14 years in prison for those who violate its provisions. Despite the fact that the bill has been passed, it has never really been implemented in Nigeria. On the other hand, there has been an increase in the amount of harassment directed toward LGBTQ people in Nigeria ever since the law was first introduced.
