Hating the Queer in Kenya! “You are not girly enough” and other stories. Proud as I am.

Reading Time: 8 minutes I am aware of the homophobic society in which I exist. I am aware that lesbians are fetishized while gay men are thought of as gross. I am aware that the constitution criminalizes my existence.

What I am to do? Because I exist, and my existence must make sense, I must resist all these external forces, I must resist my constitution, I must resist when they try to oppress me, I must speak out against the injustices against my Lgbt community, I must persist so that the generation to come will not face the injustices that me and other queer have faced in this world.

So, wherever you are, know that I am walking this journey with you. I do not understand the predicaments of trans people and gay men which are more than mine, but I will fight with you till I can’t fight no more, that’s when I die.

Exist, Resist, Persist and share with pride. Its pride month baby!
