  1. I find homosexuality disgusting and the thought makes me want to puke. I will never support it but neither will I hate, abuse or beat a gay man. So they can go ahead and their nasty stuff. It’s God that will judge. But please try women abeg

  2. First comment, I like the quality of this. Can Asaba people learn from the quality that this was produced in? Secondly, I don’t know why you have chosen to discuss this subject but I think it best known to you. I do believe justice belong to all even if they gay. I don’t have a stand on the issue yet but I did like to learn home about what being gay means and how people become gay. I know there is a lot with society stereotype and norm but conversation can change this.
