Kenyan music video fights for the rights of the LGBT community

Nairobi - The past decade or so has seen great strides being made for the LGBT community, with many countries giving them the rights that they have so vehemently fought for.
The same cannot be said for many African countries, it being illegal to be part of the community even in Kenya.
In as much as people are more aware and considerate to the people in this community living among us, it is still a thing of great taboo, with members being treated like animals and savages.
A local, openly lesbian artist has come out in a music/ spoken word video to fight for their rights. Called “Injustice”, it speaks of the plight of 3 members of the LGBT community who were brought together through the injustices that they had faced.
The first is a young lesbian lady who was denied her degree for being open about her sexuality, the second a young cross dressing man who was repeatedly raped by his uncle and the third a young boy who had been disowned by his parents and forced to live on the streets. It has a strong message, with visuals that are not for the faint of heart.
