Can gay people have families? 

Yes! LGBT people can and do have families. Same-sex couples do form committed and loving relationships. In Nigeria many same-sex couples choose to secretly celebrate their love with commitment ceremonies or civil unions, many who are able to go abroad have done so, although these couples are not offered the rights and benefits of marriage. More and more LGBT couples are also raising children together, although laws on adoption and foster parenting vary. Many LGBT people have the support of the loving families they were born into, and a high percentage are alienated or keep it a secret, or the families that they have created with their other friends and loved ones.
