A useful run down of the attitudes of African countries towards homosexuality. Two things I find particular interesting:
male homoxuality seems to be the most problematic, since many of the laws are expressly against it. In Kenya, male homosexulaity is illegal, but lesbian relations are not.
It's in the struggle against apartheid that acceptance of gay rights emerged. Imprisoned political prisoners had at some point to confront the fact that one of their own was a homosexual.
