Counting the Gay

Saturday October 31, 2009

How many gays are there in Kenya? That’s the question the National AIDS Control Program will be seeking to answer as it embarks on a census for homosexuals. NASCOP is aware of the controversy the move is likely to generate but its of the view that the subject can no longer be ignored since gays are contributing largely to the spread of HIV. Gladys Mutiso reports on an initiative some have objected to arguing that it amounted to promoting homosexuality.
