Kenya could make history by legalising homosexuality

01/18/2019 | Openly

In Kenya, February 22 2019 could be an anniversary remembered for generations. This is the date on which a three-judge bench at the Constitutional Court in Nairobi will give Kenyans – and the world – their decision on whether laws that criminalise the private, consensual relations of people of the same sex are to be scrapped. The case, heard in February 2018, was brought by Eric Gitari, until recently the executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission, a local rights organisation that provides free legal aid services to Kenya’s persecuted LGBT+ community.
