In January 2021, Uche Maduagwu became the first-ever Nollywood actor to openly reveal he is gay. In a recent post on social media, the self-acclaimed homosexual actor threatened to instigate an #EndAntiGayLaw protest in Nigeria.
The thespian stated that he is prepared to fight for the fundamental rights of members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer, (LGBTQ+) community in the country, and mentioned that he is prepared to start a movement where he will get the government’s attention and coerce them to quit the discrimination against gay people.
Read what he shared on his social media platform;
”Coming out as gay remains the best decision I ever made.
I lost endorsement deals, movie roles and friends because of this so join me as we embark on the #EndAntiGayLawNaija peaceful road protest”
