President Barack Obama learned of the Supreme Court's decisions on gay marriage en route to Senegal. The West African nation, like many in the Sub-Saharan region, has made homosexuality a criminal offense. At his news conference in Senegal, Obama called for equal rights for gays in Africa. His host, Senegalese President Macky Sall, had a different point of view. "We are not homophobic, gays are not persecuted, but for now they must accept the choices of other Senegalese," Sall said. Despite that disagreement, many Senegalese are excited about Obama's visit, says Dakar-based artist Keyti, who raps the news on Senegalese TV.
