Discrimination in Kenya
I thought some of you might be interested in this video about HIV/AIDS in Kenya.
It was issued yesterday by Christian Aid and The Guardian newspaper jointly, the first in a series of 6, one appearing each Monday, on tackling poverty in Africa. This one shows how discrimination against gay men, or men who have sex with men, means they don't have access to HIV/AIDS testing, counselling and treatment. It speaks of the very strong discrimination against sexual minorities in the churches of East Africa - but also shows the Rev. Michael Kimindu, who long ago challenged the discrimination, and started Other Sheep East Africa as a positive ministry for sexual minorities and to encourage Christians to re-think their attitude.
