Larry Madowo's take on homosexuality
05 November 2014, 16:49
Nairobi - Kenyan men were put on the spot by google just the other day
for apparently being the highest “Googlers” of Gay porn in the world.
statistics didn’t go down too well with a majority of Kenyans, most of whom
were in disbelief and denial of this fact. The Gay debate hasn’t been the most
favored topic in this country, most Kenyans taking a hard line on it claiming
that it is ungodly.
It however turns out, according to Larry Madowo, that
Kenyans are simply just “Preaching water and drinking wine”.
In an article he wrote, he claims that Kenyans are
hypocrites on the matter, with a survey by the Pew Research Center claiming
that 92% of Kenyans find homosexuality unacceptable, yet they keep googling the most gay porn in the world.

He writes “The Google Trends report
came out just after the Kenya Film Classification Board banned the feature
film, Stories of Our Lives, which tells the stories of some gay Kenyans.
One of the film’s producers, George Gachara, was even
briefly arrested. Gachara and his partners, Njoki Ngumi and Jim Chuchu,
premiered the film at the Toronto Film Festival in September.
In a country that’s mostly Christian and Muslim and rabidly opposed to
homosexuality, there sure are many odd sexual preferences your local pastor or
imam wouldn’t approve of.
Some gay commentators claim that the most homophobic people
are secretly gay; maybe this provides a shred of evidence.
