Rural Africa is believed to be the bedrock of homophobia and very tough cultural practices against persons perceived to be part of the LGBTQI community. There is a common concern that the LGBTQI agenda is foreign in origin and is ‘imposed on vulnerable Africans’ from the outside. The two speakers will explore these themes
Brian and Gerald are Kenyan LGBTQI activists working in both urban and pastoral regions of Kenya. They are currently undertaking a Protective Fellowship at the University of York.
