Survey on Homosexuality Perception in Nigeria

On the 7th of January, the Nigerian National Assembly passed the Anti-Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act, 2013. According to a NOI Polls survey conducted in June 2013, 92% of Nigerians support the legislation,[1] [1] making Nigeria the second-highest rate of non-acceptance of homosexuality out of 45 countries surveyed.

This apparent homophobia is at variance with Google analytics[2] [2] which shows that Nigerians search for gay porn. This shows the disconnection between private vice and public morality.
