  1. On Hating Gay People

    It has been so long since I was here. This has been due to so many things...one of them, work. As you all know, I work for the Gay and Lesbian Coalition of Kenya. Legal work in such an organization located at an extremely conservative country is extremely difficult. 17th May is marked internationally as the International Day Against Homophobia. In the spirit of this month, I reflect on the homophobe. I am going to ask questions the answers to which might lead to an understanding of who the homophobe ...
