Crossdressing has become even more popular than usual but it appears things are about to change for the likes of Bobrisky, Denrele Edun, and James Brown among others.
This comes after the House of Representatives made a move to revisit the same-sex bill which was passed into law by former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan in 2014.
The Punch reports that a member of the house, Muda Lawal Umar, has sponsored a bill seeking to completely prohibit crossdressing in the country.
The same media reports that the bill passed its first reading on Tuesday, April 6, with the objectives set to be debated at the second reading.
According to Premium Times, the bill seeks to make changes to Section 4 of the Same-Sex Marriage (Prohibition) Act 2013 by inserting a new Sub-clause 3 that reads:
“(1) Cross—dressing whether done publicly prohibited.”
“(2) A person shall be deemed to have committed the offence publicly where it is published or displayed publicly notwithstanding that it was committed privately or in any place that would have ordinarily been described as private.
“Provided that this section of this Act shall not apply to cross dressing in the course of a stage play or in any bona ﬁde public entertainment.”
