Pride parade-41-Edit (1).jpg

Some members of the Ugandan LGBTI community wore masks to conceal their identities at an August 2015 gay pride parade. Gay and transgendered Ugandans frequently face violence and discrimination due to their sexual orientation and are often unable to find — or afford — legal assistance. Now, a Kenyan court has ruled that it is illegal to subject suspected gays to forced medical testing to determine if they're homosexual. The practice had been opposed by the country's medical community.
