Area Boys Mercilessly Beat Cross Dresser In Lagos

A Nigerian crossdresser got more than he bargained for after he was seriously attacked by some area boys who tore his clothes and left him with injuries and no foot wear at a motor park in Lagos state.

In the video that has surfaced online, the yet-to be identified crossdresser was seen grasping for air after he was seriously manhandled by the area boys who felt irritated by his visible feminine attributes.

Naija News understands that the attack is coming, days after a group of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) advocates stormed the streets of Abuja to demand that the ‘Cross Dressers Bill’ which was recently proposed at the National Assembly, Abuja, in April 2022, be revoked.

Naija News reports that a bill prohibiting cross-dressing and proposing a six-month jail term for offenders was recently read on the floor of the House of Representatives.

The bill states that, “a person engaging in crossdressing is guilty of an offence and liable to imprisonment of 6 months or to a fine of five hundred thousand naira.”
