Like every other queer community on the continent already living in fear, the LGBTQ+ community in Kenya might be the next to be hit with an additional extreme bill. Following the draconian anti-gay bill passed by the Ugandan parliament on March 21, Kenyan Opposition MP George Peter Kaluma submitted an anti-gay bill to the National Assembly of Kenya, which he called the Family Protection Bill. “The Kenyan Family Protection Bill proposes a broader range of offences and stiffer penalties against LGBTQ activities,” he tweeted. Mr Kaluma, who has more than 180,000 followers on Twitter, also tweeted details of the content of the proposed bill, including a decade of imprisonment and the death sentence as its penalties.
