Pictures of the Coalition at the same gender marriage bill hearing in Abuja

 Uche Sam, Director of Changing Attitude Nigeria, has sent pictures of the hearing on the same gender marriage bill which took place at the National Assembly in Abuja, Nigeria, on Monday 31 October 2011. CAN was a member of the Coalition which presented statements against the bill at the Hearing. Uche says that he was involved in a number of conversations with protestors after the Hearing concluded. Those who were prepared to listen to him were talking with a gay man for the first time in their lives, and having engaged, began to change their minds – Changing Attitude in action!
