Tamaku (Diary of a Gay Kenyan) is running a poll on his blog with the question: Should Kenya decriminalise homosexuality?
Gay Uganda (GUG) is painstakingly documenting the fight by religious extremists and some government officials in Uganda to eliminate the 'terrible un-African' value of homosexuality. (Conveniently forgetting that one of their traditional Kings -Kabaka -was gay). But pay no mind to petty and accurate things like history.
In the spirit of these efforts, I took it upon myself to 'research' into the effects of decriminalising homosexuality in Kenya. Would Kenya descend into ethnically-fuelled violence? Would there be a widespread ( man-made) famine and massive loss of jobs? Would Kenya beat Nigeria in the world cup qualifiers? Would Kalembe finally, finally become President of Kenya?
Although I am gay, I remained impartial through the whole process of collecting data.
I present you my 'findings' (LOL):
What would happen if Kenya Decriminalises Homosexuality?
