There is still a lot of resentment towards homosexuals. In addition, the law is in many ways not supportive of the LGBTQ community.
However, in recent times, a number of Kenyan celebrities have openly prided themselves on being LGBTQ. Their appearance is often met with blemish and in some cases outright hostility.
Here are the brave who still stretch their necks:
1. Brendah Jons
Known as 'Mama Kingston', Brendah Jons made her fan debut as a lesbian last year after going public with details of her relationship with her ex. Jons uploaded a video explaining her sexual orientation to her fans and within hours she discovered that her girlfriend was cheating on her. In a series of videos on her Instagram Stories, the content creator shared the news of how her cheating spouse has hit her hard.
2. Willis Chimano
Band member Sauti Sol caused a social media frenzy when he stepped out of his closet. Although there were many rumors about his gender before his debut, he received a lot of backlash from the public. Either way, he came out and came out as gay.
3. Silas Miami.
Silas is one of Kenya's most talented filmmakers. He once posed on social media with his white lover, while declaring how happy he is. He currently lives in South Africa, where he works in the film industry.
4. Dennis Karuri.
The makeup industry has been dominated by women for decades, but Dennis is considered by many to be Kenya's best makeup artist. Dennis loves to wear makeup and girly clothes to look like a woman. Although he has been criticized online for his sexual orientation, he is still proud to be gay.
