Nigeria's first gay memoir

Writer Chike Frankie Edozien has written a memoir on growing up as a gay man in Nigeria, in the Lives of Great Men. As well as telling the story of his life, the book tells the stories of other Africans who are having to cope with being gay, bi-sexual or somehow 'other' on the sexual spectrum.
