Out in the World: Kenya court ruling in favor of LGBTQ group sparks anti-queer demonstrations


Religious leaders and members of parliament are protesting a ruling by Kenya’s Supreme Court that dismissed a challenge to its earlier decision this year upholding LGBTQ organizations’ right to register with the government. At issue was Kenyan Member of Parliament George Peter Kaluma’s challenge to the court in February about its decision siding with the National Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission’s right to register as a nonprofit with the country’s government. On September 12, the high court dismissed Kaluma’s motion because it failed to substantiate the claims and due to him not being a party to the case at any point during the legal process.
