Miss saHHara first Nigerian Transgender, on BBC London Interview, “I left Nigeria to save my life”

“Ahhhhh, I am fuming, these TERF (Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist) feminists always think they are above all women who don’t fit into their narrative of what a woman should be.”

“What happened to being inclusive and tolerant of all women, no matter their life histories?”

“I get a lot of online messages from Nigerian trans girls who are there now and they find it so difficult. A nightmare,” Sahhara told BBC Trending, “there’s no male privilege for trans women in Africa.”

Growing up in rural northern Nigeria, where homosexual activity can be punishable by death (although no executions by law for homosexual activity have been verified), Sahhara says that it was “obvious to all” that she was “a girl in a boy’s body”.

Nigeria is one 34 African countries that outlaws same-sex relationships, and since the Nigerian government tightened its anti-gay laws in 2014, punishments have become much harsher.

“My uncles beat me up for the way I behaved,” Sahhara says. “It’s the way it’s done in Africa.”
