The Norwegian Council for Africa invites you to a conversation between Denis Nzioka and Stian Amadeus Antonsen. Stian is the board chairperson of the Norwegian Council, and worked with the Kenyan LGBT movement in 2010. There will be a Q&A after the conversation.
The secret gay life of Nairobi
Denis Nzioka lives in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya. He is openly gay, has written a number of articles on LGBT and other human rights issues, and has more than 8000 followers on Twitter. In 2013 he was a candidate in the Kenyan presidential elections.
How is life as an openly gay man in Nairobi? How are the reactions from friends and family? Why is the situation so different from neighboring Uganda? And will the ongoing legal case to decriminalize homosexuality have a positive ruling?
