Homosexuality is well rooted in the core of Nigerian society &identity - Bisi Alimi writes

Nigeria's foremost gay activist, Bisi Alimi 2 days ago delivered a lecture titled “Post-colonial sexual identity and orientation in Nigeria” at Free University in Berlin, Germany where he said homosexuality is very African as much as it is Nigerian. Below is an extract from his paper:
Even though Nigeria has recently seen a more active conversation around the issue of sexuality and gender, these conversations are played out on the premise of sentiments, morality, religion and assumptions rather than on facts. But it is facts and not assumption that can put things into perspective.
The argument against homosexuality in Nigeria has been on the premise that it is “un-African” and hence not part of our culture. The other premise used is that since it is not part of our culture, therefore it is “un-biblical”.
Since the introduction of modern religion into Africa, there has been confusion between the real African identity vs enforced identity.
This confusion has also found its way into the discourse around cultural identity. The modern understanding of what really is an “African culture” has created a basis for identity misunderstanding not just in Nigeria, but the whole of Africa.

It was not only religion that played a role in the misconstruction of “African Culture” in the 21st century. With the coming of colonizing, African identities were systematically washed away. Africans were made to believe through western education, politics and religion that anything African is not fit for purpose and therefore demonized in most of the cases.

However, unlike culture, identity is more on a personal individualist level. Identity could be strongly interwoven with culture.

I remembered when I first came to the United Kingdom, as a Nigerian. There are certain things in my culture that were not permitted within the English culture. For example, the English could not understand why I have to eat certain food with my fingers.

However, that lack of cultural understanding has not taken away from me my gender identity as a man nor has it eroded my sexual identity as a gay man.

Therefore, how then does the argument used by Nigerian religious and political class as regards sexuality and gender fit into the actualization of fundamental human rights for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) people?

Prior to colonization, there are evidences to prove that Africa was never a “heteronomative” society. In “African Sexualities: A Reader” Sylvia Tamale argues: “African sexuality lies in ancient histories that live through girot, ighyuwas, imbongies, jellies, igawens, guewels".
As a young child with deep interest in my culture, I was really fascinated at the eloquences with which histories are passed on from generation to generations in Africa through the power of poetry and oration.
I remembered in 2005, as part of my research in sexuality and sexual identity, I came across the famous word “Adodi”. This translates as “anus fucker”. The fact that there is a language for sexual behaviour explains that there are indeed people that are considered as such.

Aside from that, many of African arts (it is important to note here that while Africans were never seen as writers, the one fact that can never be taken away from us is that fact that we are artist. We tell the story of our lives through our sculpture, painting and drawing), have shown the celebration of same sexual relationship before the colonization of the continent.

African arts has had huge influence on the Greek art and even more so the roman arts. These arts that not only promote but celebrate sexuality has African culture and identity at its core.
From Igbo Ukwu, to Benin and Ife art, Nigerian art works celebrate the existence of same sexual relationship, not as seen as “homosexuality” in modern terms, but as a process of nurturing the acceptance of dualism of sexuality.

In religious setting, most Nigerian gods actually have dual sexes. Take for example ESU who is neither man nor woman, male of female. Shango, the god of thunder is dressed as transvestites, wearing skirts with earrings on both ears and braided hair. Obatala, though a male god is subtle, emotional and sexual.

Even more interesting are the female gods. Oya the goddess of the ocean and Yemoja the mermaid are said to have used their sexuality to conquer men. They were not just seductive, but they exhibited a level of romantic affinity for each other.

Then the question will be, what happened? Ben Anderson in “The Politics of Homosexuality in Africa” examined the written literature of colonial observation of same sexual relationship in Africa.
According to him, examples of famous western sexuality historians like Staples, Davies and Whitten tend to disregard pre-colonial homosexuality in Africa as a forced, accidental ‘phase’ rather than a cognitive choice”.

Anderson noted that in an article in 1982, Lamb argued, “it is curious by Western standards that homosexuality in Africa is virtually unknown.” He stated further that “Africa’s traditional is rigidly heterosexual”.

As a student of African sexuality and gender identity, I know this is not true. I am not alone in my argument, Dr. C. Otutubikey Izugbara in a paper titled “Patriarchal Ideology and Discourses of Sexuality in Nigeria” explained that “evidence, indeed suggests that, in many cases, homosexual practices, while not always explicitly discussed or identified as such in larger public imaginary were often treated with more tolerance in pre-colonial Nigeria than during and after colonial period”.

In the book “The origins and Role of Same Sex Relations in Human Societies” James Neil buttressed my earlier assertion that in Nigeria homosexuality is rooted in our traditional religious believe. He stated, “members of the a spirit possession cult among the Hausa in northern Nigeria practices cross-dressing and take the passive role in homosexual intercourse”.
Lyn Ossome in her contribution to Queer African Reader edited by Sokari Ekine and Hakima Abbas further dismissed the perceived westernization of homosexuality on the continent of Africa. In a contribution, she argued that the notion that “there is no homosexuality in Africa” is a false claim “often accompanied by the similarity insidious accusation that homosexuality is a ‘western perversion’ imposed upon or adopted by African population”.
In the book “The construction of Homosexuality” Greenburg documented the existence of same sexual relationship in diverse African communities including Nigeria. Also Davis and co in “The Cross-Cultural Study of Human Sexuality. Annual review of Anthropology” argued that “a wide variety of homosexual behaviour is reported”, they also documented “the use of artificial phalli” between two women as a “compensation for rare heterosexual intercourse”.

Two notable anthropologists have not only documented behaviours, but they have also shown acceptance even to the level of marriage. First of such is William Naphy in his well-written book “Born to be Gay”. In it, Naphy captured the process of same gender marriage with the medium of paying bride price. He claimed, “it is clear that customs involving woman-woman ‘marriages” (in which case bride-price and dowries may exchange hands) is extensive”. He dismissed argument against same sex relations in Africa as ‘ludicrous and to suggest that a practice which is so widespread and yet differently constructed is anything but indigenous. Even more so Naphy considered any argument by white Europeans against the exhibition of same sex relations between Africans as racism.

Another interesting take on beyond sexual behaviour to actual exhibition of relationship is ‘Boy wives ad female husband’. According to Anderson, this book in its research “also effectively demonstrates the existence of same sex love before the arrival of the white settlers”

But let us for a second agree with the proposition of Staples that exhibition of same sexual behaviour in pre-colonial Nigeria was a phase. The question we then have to ask is: where did they learn this phase? Who and what influenced the occurrence of this phase among what the western academia will refer as “primitive” people.

There are possibly two answers to these questions. Its is either we argue that Africans are of lesser human and therefore happened to experiment occasional sexuality, or that actually, homosexuality like every other human traits is inherent in all people irrespective of race, gender, or age.

If you agree with me that homosexuality is very African as much as it is Nigerian, then the argument put forward by both the western and the African opposition to homosexual behaviour is flawed.

Based on the above explanation and argument, I will say that homosexuality is well rooted in the core of Nigerian society and identity

Homosexuality is natural. nobody was born, grew up and decided that he or she want to be gay. no you are born with it. Nigerians need to have an open mind and accept everyone as the are religion have nothing to do with it. i have a neighbour and there 12 year old son is gay and this child's parents still love him and support him. if i have a child M/F and the come out to me as gay i will support them even more. we are all human been that's even more powerful than any cultural and religious beliefs.

So, is this fag saying that his fore-fathers had homosexual tendencies, and heterosexuality was forced down Africans' throats by colonial masters? Yet, he is alive today because his father and mother both decided to be heterosexual.

Someone needs to tell him that God created a man and a woman; an Adam and Eve, not an Adam and St(Eve). Humanity must continue, and we all must we must all do our best to preserve this gift of life.

Dear Alimi, you cannot force your desired homosexuality on Nigerians. Homosexuality is barbaric. It is a learned behaviour and so can be unlearned. Just how sleeping with one's offspring does not feel right, so is homosexuality in the same light. Homosexuality is unnatural! It's a deviation from what and how things should be.
Do you think you cannot stop being homosexual? Do you think you were born this way and Nigeria is marginalizing you? If yes, think again, Alimi and indeed in a moment of truth search your soul and think on my comment.

I advise all homosexuals in their best interest to unlearn homosexuality and kick it out of their system.

Mich said...

Well written,brilliant and carefully researched upon.
Be that as it may,the questions that readily comes to mind are;aren't there more important issues to be an activist for than this?
Are we therefore saying,our sexual preferences is more important than or on the verge of extinction than millions of kids that are plagued by hunger,disease and wars?
Why should I take LGBT seriously when there are other people/activists fighting for the rights of women that have been bruised,battered,scourged and raped?
Would God forgive me if show support for Gay activists without doing same for PETA?I mean,we kill animals every now and then thereby pushing some of God's creation into extinction.
Nobody is arguing that pre-historic or pre-colonial Africans didn't have "anus fuckers" as the writer so explicitly described it,what the bulk of people are saying is simply this...
"you lot a a bunch of self-serving mortals on a quest to ONLY fulfill your sexual fantasies by hiding under the umbrella of "human rights" to perpetuate your selfish sexual desires".
I totally do not condemn Gays and Lesbians but I just can't condone them...at least not when there's still AIDS and Cancer killiing millions of people daily.

There is clearly no basis for this argument, homosexuality is no african in anyway. Its not even a natural way of life. Perhaps its just the misconstrued minds of gay people that give them that thought. Creation clearly determined ones sexuality when assigning the sex organs.

Well, after all you've said, the truth remains that homosexuality is a demonic trait from the pit of hell along with all the gods and godesses you mentioned.
Its like saying God was stupid to make them male and female in the beginning.
Homosexuality contradicts and insults the very essence of nature. In case you've seen an instance, i would'nt know but i'v never seen same sex animals mate before. Its astounding to note that even animals know the right thing to do.

First of all,I congratulate you for a good writing and myself for being very patient..If homosexuality is deeply rooted in Nigeria its because people like you brought it upon us. The white man came with his religion, we accepted, we simply refused them from wiping off some of our cultures and they respected it and that is why we still have Our traditional marriages and festivals..They have helped us Immensely, gave us Education, stopped unnecessary killings etc..(We are grateful anyway).Yet their so called technologies, civilization, Education is what the world is fighting and killing each other with! We have seen these things and we are simply protecting the only 'virtue' we have Left, before the white man kills it all! We don't want to join the band wagon, we want to be the way we are! In Nigeria, we practice three religions 'Christianity Islam and ATR' and neither of them accepts that shit and that is why it won't work here! Can't you get?Call a spade a spade! Are you sure you are writing as a Nigerian? or as a gay man writing to suit himself and his type. In African traditional Religion(ATR) there is what is called 'Abomination' and this is one of them and I am confused at how you are writing from that perspective and forgetting that your religion forbids it! Hence you only quoted authors, and dint hit the nail on the head.(ATR basics) We need a better lecture, like 'The solution to terrorism in Nigeria' This issue of 'homosexuality' has never been a problem, it Just took so damn long to tackle it...

Anyway, the young man should just stay back in UK and hope he changes his ways before he gets to point of no return.

Romans 1 vs 22-27

Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles,
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts, even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way, the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves due penalty for their PERVERSION.

Repentance is the way to go, Mr Alimi and others still in hiding.

He should come down to naija and rant like this now, so he can be used as the scape goat

smart boy, he needed to relocate to the Uk. Oyibo stu, pid no be small. How can they believe all that rubbish about his being heartbroken over the death of his mate? The guy will soon impregnate someone there; don't mind all that thrash. It is like some old, grown crooks who run there claiming someone wants to circumsise them by force.

No matter how academic u want to sound, homosexuality is abnormal and wrong. The vagina is made differently from the anus. God is perfect this if he wanted the anus to be an active recipient in the sexual process surely He would have constructed it much like the vagina?! How many times have you heard a vagina destroyed by sex? Do you know how many homosexuals suffer anal incontinence? Surely that points to the fact that it's use for the sexual act is unnatural? That aside even, my biggest problem with the LGBT community is why do they have to force their abnormality down our throats and force is to accept them as normal?? I'm tired of reading about them, seeing them everywhere they should all just go and keep destroying their bodies and leave the rest of the world out of it biko! I only pray that by the time Gods anger will descend on us I would have died and left this world because believe me all my LGBT friends that would be a terrible day. SMDH

Well, even wen I was 5. I remember that women could marry women in Nigeria-Ibo culture. It is pretty vague right now but it is something I've always remembered and remained bewildered by. Also there's the Hausa men that have always dressed as women. And at is without expose to western norms. They haven't been crucified and they live side by side with those we deem heterosexual

Freedom knows no religion, Tribe, ethnicity or Sexuality. She loves her, He loves him.Love is love if only we see past just SEX. Religion is confusing, Culture and customs are restricting, But feelings don't lie, its in the blood.You can deceive your pastors and Imams, but only you know those warm feelings you get when that girl you like walk pass by, or the happy memories You share with that great guy.

Whether or not homosexuallity is African is really not the issue. We all are humans and all I'm concerned about is the justification of the act itself. My belief condemns it and I stand by my belief.

Homosexuality is real. Just because you are not one of them don't mean you should judge them. If it's really a sickness. Why are you so bitter about someone else's sickness? Nobody cares who you are banging or who you are giving oral sex to. Leave gay people alone and honestly until one of our own comes out of the closet . Maybe you would understand sha.Would you judge hermaphrodites ? I hope not .This people are just trapped in a different body and if it's truly a disorder , aren't we supposed to take them for who they are. I don't think anyone wants to live in a society that promotes hatred against them. Until ya all accept them, most of you will be sleeping with your so called gay husbands and wives.i say this cause i know some of them and trust me them plenty die.they not going anywhere. If u like no accept, na to dey marry downlow men and secret lesbos. I will continue to love my gay or lesbian friends.

Well said. But infortunately nigerians r too daft to accept! The bible is their main n only source of argument. They really think a straight person will want to go through all these humiliation just to 'commit sodomy' many of us are not educated, we only go by what our parents n rich pastors tell us. We've got a long way to go. As I woman I can't stand the body, sweat, smell of a man. Or masculinity in general. I've always loved the soft sensual touch of a woman. And as for the gay, only 30 or 40 percent participate in anal sex. Most gays don't like it. But some of the degenerates out here to speed of to the 'anal sex' topic without even giving room to 'love'.
