Gay Content In Hollywood Movies And Its Effect On Nigeria



[ad name=”ad sense”]

Yes, Nigeria has passed an anti-gay bill subjecting anyone
caught in a gay act to a sentence of 14yrs in prison. But how
long do you think such a law will last? Not for long, with the
recent trend of events. Why? Because we as a nation are
getting exposed more and more to a medium that promotes
LGBT(lesbians-gays-bisexuals-transgender). That medium is
the products of the american movie industry, hollywood.
Ever bought an american movie in the past to discovered
the subtle way in which homosexualism is promoted? Well,
it’s now in your face. Currently, the world is getting carried
away from the trend of movies that don’t span beyond 2hrs
to movies that go beyond hundreds of hours, cos most
viewers often wished some movies don’t end, a reason why
series came into the picture, getting people glued to their
TVs consuming the contents of such movies.

movies of today hardly go without a gay content, even if it’s
just the mention of the word GAY e.g the INTERVIEW and 50
I was cruising round town with my brother and a friend
yesterday when some radio OAPs were discussing about a
new TV series called EMPIRE. I wasn’t interested in their
discussion till my bro and his friend started talking about
how interesting the series is, that they can’t wait to get the
2nd season. I decided to get the season 1 on my way back.
Barely 10minutes into the first episode, I was greeted by a
scene showing 2 grown guys kissing and acting all emotional.
The characters were jamal and his girlfriend michael.
What annoys me most is the way they( the directors of these
movies) try to persuade people into thinking there’s nothing
wrong with the homosexualism, giving it a good
promotion…like making the gay character appear as
someone with a good heart but clearly misunderstood. They
throw in a gay relationship that is deeply rooted in a 100%
love, honesty, faithfulness and loyalty, making straight
people jealous cos a 100% of everything is not obtainable in
a straight relationship. The gay character in the series
EMPIRE, jamal, was giving a very attractive role so as to lure

unsuspecting viewers into the world of gayism. In the movie,

talented among them with a voice to kill any female, the
gentle one, loves a kid he’s not certain of it’s paternity(how
many guys do that?), the only one who cares about their ex-
convict mum and several other qualities that can make a
die-hard homophobic person go emotional and accept him
for who he is. Everybody loves a guy with the above
qualities. To pave way for the acceptance of homosexualism,
the several hollywood directors are now moulding
characters with such qualities and making them gay. Such
strategy leaves viewers toning down their hate or dislike for
And that’s where I fear for Nigeria. In the next few years,
going by the rate at which we are exposed to the hollywood
contents, majority of those that jubilated when the anti-gay
bill was passed, will storm the streets demanding for its
