The Equality Hub has released the teaser of its upcoming feature documentary film, Under The Rainbow.
In the first of its kind ever released in Nigeria, a lesbian from Nigeria narrates
her journey of self-discovery in a powerful story of love, rejection, loss, and
triumph set against the backdrop of a deeply homophobic society. Driven
by the findings of a recent study in which 83% of Nigerians say they would
reject a family member who is LGBT, and believe that LGBT people should
not have access to public services like education and healthcare, Under
The Rainbow aims to increase visibility and create a more positive
perception of LGBT Nigerians.
Under The Rainbow tells the coming out and life story of Pamela Adie, an
LGBT rights activist from Nigeria. It was shot on location in Lagos State,
Nigeria. It features guest contributors such as film director, Adeola
Osokunjo, Red Media’s Chude Jideonwo, Olumide Makanjuola, Ade
Balogun and Ese Walter.
Under The Rainbow was written, directed, and produced by Pamela Adie,
who serves as the Executive Director at The Equality Hub.
