Kenyan Newspaper Prints The Names Of ‘Top Homos’

Kenya_Gay_Article_Headline_BlurWeekly Citizen, a tabloid newspaper in Kenya, printed a list of “top homos” in an attempt to out gay people in the country. Several were previously in the closet. While some are known internationally as proud spokespeople for the community, others include a senator and a gospel singer.

Gay rights groups have expressed concern that the publication of the list of fourteen people will increase the persecution of LGBT people in Kenya and incite mob violence, similar to when Ugandan activist David Kato was killed after being ‘named and shamed’ on the front page of a tabloid in 2010.

4.

Whenever possible, the women purchased extra- large beds to accommodate group sex sessions involving perhaps half-a-dozen women.

The above are just four examples excerpted from Stephen O. Murray’s discourse of the evidence of homosexuality among various cultures in sub-Saharan Africa. Download Free PDF here.

And the winner for Most Gay Porn Googled Country is…

2Anti-gay laws and strong social stigma appear to be doing nothing to abate the curiosity of everyday people – with Kenya’s searches for gay sex outranking those of all Western countries.

Kenya tops the Google trends rankings for both ‘gay sex pics’ and ‘gay porn pics’, with an extraordinarily high search index. South Africa came second, followed by Nigeria and Pakistan, with the US & UK ranking a distant seventh and eighth.

92% of the Kenyan population agrees that homosexuality is ‘unacceptable’, while having sex “against the order of nature” in the country can carry a prison sentence of up to 21 years.

The Anti-Homosexuality Bill would introduce harsh punishments for homosexuality, with life imprisonment or the death penalty for ‘aggravated homosexuality’.
