Diane wants lesbianism legalised in Nigeria, says she’s attracted to girls
Big Brother Naija star and model Diane Russet says she would love to see lesbianism legalised in Nigeria.
The 25-year-old made this revelation on Instastories on Tuesday after asking her followers to share a secret they had never told anyone.
A follower wrote: “I’m so attracted to girls! I wish lesbianism is legal, I would love to date a girl.”
Diane responded: “This conversation hmm I doubt Nigeria will because we are too religious. Won’t type much before someone misquotes me. I will love to see it legalised though.”
Homosexuality is outlawed in many socially conservative African societies including Nigeria.
In 2014, a law that bans same-sex “amorous relationships” was introduced.
Born Precious Yashim, Diane is a native of Kaduna State.
