In celebration of pride month, HBO will be releasing a brand new documentary called ‘The Legend of the Underground’ centred on youths challenging ideas of gender, conformity, and civil rights in Nigeria.

Through bold creativity, they work to spark a cultural revolution that would challenge the ideals of gender, conformity, and civil rights in Nigeria.”
