Sharia law is still present in parts of Nigeria in Africa. While the double standard is not as black and white here, it is still present. For homosexual acts in some states, women may receive whippings or jail time while men can be punishable by death. In other states, you may still face jail time for taking part in, or a slightly lighter jail sentence for even attempting to take part in, homosexual acts. Nigerians are also banned from joining clubs or organizations that support or encourage gay rights, possibly getting ten years behind bars if they ignore this law.
