Kenya’s gay opening on Nairobi television

Category: Uncategorized<ADMINNICENAME> @ 7:08 PM

One of the leading broadcasters in East Africa, NTV, today aired a balanced, accurate and informative report on the struggle for homosexuals in Africa to gain equal treatment in their societies.

Homosexuality remains illegal in most African countries. While South Africa legalized gay marriage in 2006, in recent years some African countries have tried to tighten restrictions on homosexuality, prodded by evangelical Christians who increasingly influence political debates in such bellwether countries as Uganda and Ghana.

NTV television reported on the increasingly willingness of Africans to “come out of the closet,” despite the “taboo” of homosexuality in most places. While the broadcast quoted people defending the rights of gays, the reporter concluded, that homosexuality is “a long way from becoming part of popular African culture.”
