Unshrouding the “Veil of Silence”

One year after the anti-gay bill was passed in Nigeria, the Nigerian LGBT Community in New York City organized an event to facilitate conversation on the issues surrounding the community, the detailed effects of the law, and so much more. A private screening of the documentary VEIL OF SILENCE, and a panel discussion with prestigious representatives from international LGBT movements, government and health sectors was held.

The event was co-sponsored by Arcus Foundation and Housing Works. Hosted by GMHC. Supported by IGLHRC, Heartland Alliance, NYC Department of Health, Immigration Equality, ACT Up and AVAC.
