“I have a duty to speak the truth as I see it and share not just my triumphs, not just the things that felt good, but the pain, the intense, often unmitigated pain. It is important to share how I know survival is survival and not just a walk throught the rain.” Audre Lorde ✊🏾

#ChangeIsNeeded Kenya to rule on gay rights as African neighbours look on. Decision has implications for rest of continent, where LGBT people face widespread discrimination

Quoted @WayneDavid81

I’ve been so lucky to have spent the week with this inspiring group of young people on our @stonewalluk BAME/PoC LGBTQ+ campaigning programme. My mind is blown, my heart is bursting and my passion for empowering young people is stronger than ever. 👍🏼👍🏽👍🏾👍🏿🏳️‍🌈

Amazing to see this group of young people on the @stonewalluk #BAME #POC #LGBTQ+ campaigning programme. We are proud to work closely with Stonewall 🏳️‍🌈✊🏾

I’ve spent the last three days facilitating a @stonewalluk campaigning programme for BAME/PoC LGBT youth.  A group of incredible, inspirational and empowered young people who are going to change the world. This work is SO important - thank you @comicrelief for making it possible.

Tomorrow's court ruling could decriminalise gay sex in Kenya. Yes, a positive outcome is likely to be appealed—but these activists won't give up. #Repeal162 would have a seismic influence in striking down similar British colonial laws across east Africa 🏳️‍🌈

We cannot wait to celebrate, learn & be inspired at the @COLOURSyouthuk Festival this Saturday. UKBP are proud to be supporting #coloursyouthfestival 🏳️‍🌈

Quoted @shailjapatel

Section 162 of Kenya's penal code is a British colonial law, imposed in 1930, that criminalizes consensual same~sex adult relationships. This Friday, February 22nd, after 89 years of colonial homophobia, the High Court delivers its ruling on #Repeal162. https://www.nation.co.ke/oped/opinion/Rid-Kenya-of-inhumane--colonial-laws/440808-4899436-jox2ij/index.html …

Crossing everything that we hear good news in Kenya on Friday. A date has also been set for a similar hearing in Botswana in March. Progress is slow, but we're slowly building a world where LGBT+ are equal under the law, no matter their country of birth.

Quoted @MsLadyPhyll

Did you know? Our trustees, @MsLadyPhyll, spoke to @PinkNews about colonialism: "I don't believe in empire...LGBTQI people are still being persecuted, tortured and even killed because of sodomy laws… that were put in place by British imperialists." https://www.instagram.com/p/Btq5nX1gWK2/
