Queer rights in Africa and beyond

Oct 27, 2011

Health and human rights activist Lourence (Larry) Misedah's family in Kenya -- where homosexuality is punishable with 14 years in prison -- disowned him when he publicly came out as gay in 2007. Then, after violence and death threats at his university, he applied for and was granted political asylum in the U.S.  Hear his story and more about LGBT struggles in Africa and the Middle East from Misedah and International Gay & Lesbian Human Rights Commission executive director Cary Johnson. Eric Jansen hosts.
