Russia Sends a Powerful Message to Kenya on LGBTQ Ruling; Advises Leaders on What to Do to Be Safe

Russia has joined Kenyan political leaders in criticizing the Supreme Court's recent decision allowing the LGBTQ community to officially register their own association. The Russian Ambassador in Nairobi asserted that the Western world was responsible for the decision and issued a warning that the West would not rest on its laurels. The Embassy stated in a tweet, "If traditional principles are not upheld, humanity will perish. not parents 1 and 2, but rather, relatives! Law, not regulations!"

The decision by Kenya's Supreme Court was a significant victory for the LGBTQ population in the nation, which has long endured prejudice and repression. However, the decision has drawn criticism from numerous political figures in Kenya and around the world, with some even asking for its reversal. The recent statement from Russia is just the newest illustration of this opposition to the advancement of LGBTQ rights.

Despite the fact that Russia has a long history of opposing LGBTQ rights and passing laws that discriminate against the community, its remarks about Kenya's decision highlight a larger problem of anti-LGBTQ sentiment in many nations around the globe. Allies must stand with the LGBTQ community in the ongoing battle for equality and speak out against prejudice and hatred.
