HRAP Alum leads #queeringtheballot campaign in Kenya

Thursday, June 23, 2022

Initiative for Equality and Non Discrimination (INEND), founded by 2014 Advocate Esther Adhiambo, has spent Pride month #queeringtheballot in Kenya. Esther’s organization reports: “LGBTQ Kenyans are not protected from discrimination. We've had queer persons from the whole LGBTQ spectrum being violated physically and sexually. Some have even succumbed to senseless brutality for identifying as queer. It is for this reason that INEND has been relentless in organizing voter education for queer persons, training queer persons as observers for the coming elections, and involving stakeholders in ensuring security for queer persons.”
