Amara, a staunch lesbian and gay rights activist, said she and her queer friends were rejected by protesters after joining an ongoing rainbow flag and #EndSARS protest in Abuja.
Amara said their posters were torn down and their rainbow flag was also captured by protesters who prevented them from waving them.
“A woman was carrying a rainbow flag, and our fellow demonstrators turned against us at the Berger roundabout in Abuja. they tore down our signs and confiscated the flag. I got it back, but they refused to fly. I wore it around my neck and they refused. he said: either we shoot or we leave. I go out”
