LGBTQ+ community in Kenya defies anti-gay protests

 |

The LGBTQ+ community in Kenya is fighting back against recent anti-gay protests pushing for the curtailment of their rights as they seek recognition and acceptance. Recently, anti-gay protests have taken place following a court ruling last month by Kenya’s Supreme Court to reaffirm the LGBTQ+ community’s right of association. Kenya’s laws outlaw same-sex relationships, but the court reaffirmed an earlier ruling that the Non-Governmental Organization Board in Kenya discriminated against LGBTQ+ people when it refused to register their association.
