Hi! I'm Waithera. I live in a country where you can be imprisoned for 14 years for being LGBTQ+ or worse killed. So Pride month isn't a thing here. We even had a book and movie called "Stories of our lives" banned because it was talking about LGBTQ rights. I'm not LGBTQ+ but I have lots of friends who are and have to stay closeted for their own safety. Ask me Anything!

So yes. I'm from Kenya and its illegal to be gay mostly because of religion and culture. 

The book and novel that were banned have somehow made their way to some people in the country but the filmmakers and directors are warranted for arrest if the film is found with anyone.

PS: I have the book. lol.
