Hundreds oppose LGBTQ people during slanderous Kenyan protest


Human rights organizations have condemned an anti-LGBTQ protest attended by hundreds who chanted hateful and misleading slogans in Nairobi, Kenya, last week. Erasing 76 Crimes presents this account from the EFE News Agency below, along with resources to help fight back against anti-LGBTQ slander. The EFE news agency reported: Hundreds of people took to the streets in Nairobi on Oct 6 to protest against the LGBTQ community in a demonstration that has been condemned by human rights organizations. The demonstrators gathered in front of the Supreme Court in downtown Nairobi to reject the decision made by the court last February, when it allowed the legal registration of a pro-LGBTQ rights organization in the country against an appeal by the Kenyan government.
