After a financial dispute last month, Steeve, a pastor of the Evangelical Church of Cameroon, attacked his lover, Boris, and publicly revealed that Boris is a homosexual. In return, Boris announced Steeve’s homosexuality, which cost Steeve lost his job as a pastor for the Evangelical Church of Cameroon. The fact that Cameroon is such an intensely homophobic society allowed the squabble to escalate into anti-gay reprisals and mutual public shaming. The dispute began when Boris decided to cut back on financial support he was giving to Steeve and Steeve’s family. Angered by that decision, Steeve and his brothers attacked Boris and persuaded Boris’s landlady to evict him.
