Legal groups say Kenya’s justice system rarely prosecutes homophobic crimes, but that may soon change: In 2011 the incoming President of Kenya’s Supreme Court Dr. Willy Mutunga called gay rights the “other frontier of marginalization” in Kenyan society in a signal that he may pressure Kenya’s judiciary to decriminalize homosexual acts.
In the wake of author Binyavanga Wainaina (previously 1, 2) coming out
and the release of Invisible: Stories from Kenya’s Queer Community
, hope that Kenya may be going against the tide
regarding gay rights in Africa.
