Homosexuals speak out

Mombasa - "It is barbaric, it is beyond thought that someone has got a reason to deny one chance to decide what they want; that is why they passed such a law," these are the sentiments of Kelvin and Metrine, a well known gay couple living in Mombasa.
Kelvin, a lady who has tried her level best to dress, walk and talk like a man, got the courage to face the media and share her views on Uganda's anti-homosexuality bill saying that Museveni was driven by personal other than public interests.
“If the Uganda president had the public in his mind, he would not have signed the Bill into law,” said Kelvin.
Kelvin said that she did not see the reason as to why Museveni was against homosexuality, challenging his thought that it does not exist among other animal species by quoting a study by Simon Levey that proves homosexuality is existent in animals especially among the rams, who completely do not show any interest in their females but quickly respond when other rams are brought to them.
The couple is optimistic that the Kenyan government will not follow suit in passing laws that will subject them to slavery over what they not only believe in but also practice.
A chat with people who knew Kelvin while she was still single said that she was lonely and isolated most of the time. However, much could not be gathered on her upbringing to verify if there were issues that could have forced her into lesbianism.
A study by doctor Simon Levey indicates that as much as there might be some kind of hormonal imbalances that lead to homosexuality, the upbringing of a child is much to blame for such behaviors. For instance, he states that if a boy child has many older brothers, chances of him behaving as a girl later in life are very high.
The coastal region is home to many people who believe in same sex marriages with most of them living in Mombasa, Malindi and Lamu.
