Will Austria’s Deportation of a Gay Nigerian Soccer Coach Seal His Death?

Austria recently deported gay soccer coach Cletus B back to Nigeria where he may face execution for being gay, because that’s how they do things there. The police arrested the coach along with 14 of his players when they raided the anti-racist football team “FC Sans Papiers” (“without papers”) using over 100 officers. Heinz Leitner with LGBT Asylum News blames racist, right-wing laws and an ineffectual gay community while the Austrian Green Party claims the government severely mishandled the case. Maybe it’s, uh, both?
