Nigeria is Dangerous

Along with the struggle for "equal rights" in the States, the rest of the world needs our attention as sisters and brothers who are LGBTQ are facing persecution daily.  God knows what will happen once the Olympics is over in Russia. In Uganda the modified "Kill the Gays" bill has gone into effect.  And Nigeria has arrested 38 out of 168 people listed as "gay".

The work of justice is before us.  This is a marathon. Civil rights, which encompasses equal rights, is to be the aim for ALL who are part of minority groups based on things we cannot change: sex, sexual orientation, race, age, ability/disability.
