Transgender In Kenya
Sokari Ekine's Black Looks blog is a wonderful place to find information about GLBT issues on the African continent, since the media here in the States, with the exception of occasional pieces in EBONY/JET magazines is woefully lacking in terms of covering the second largest continent on Planet Earth.
White South Africa gets great news coverage and has advocacy and education orgs such as the Liesl Theron led Gender DynamiX inside its borders, the rest of the continent's transgender people face varying struggles to be heard.
Here's a long article by Audrey Mbugua that discusses what's happening with my transpeeps in Kenya.
