NAIROBI, Kenya — The anti-gay Republican Liberty Party is expected to protest President Barack Obama and his “aggressive support” for gay rights by sending five thousands nude protestors to Nairobi’s Freedom Corner in the Uhuru Park at 10 a.m. tomorrow, and again on Thursday.
William Ruto, Kenya’s Deputy President, has stated that those who wish to “engage in those things” can practice them in other countries. A statement from the party claims the protest’s objective is for Obama “to see and understand the difference between a man and woman.”
They’re hoping to have as many as “5,000 totally naked men and women” in attendance. Many of the volunteers are sex workers who fear work will dry up if homosexuality is ever legalized in Kenya.
In Kenya, homosexuality is punishable by up to 14 years of imprisonment.
