Tiwonge Chimbalanga May Immigrate To Canada

The Maravi Post of Malawi is reporting that Tiwonge Chimbalanga, who had been arrested, convicted, sentenced to fourteen years’ imprisonment and later pardoned of the crime of “gross indecency” following a same-sex marriage engagement to Steven Monjeza, may be preparing to move to Canada:

“Yes, Tiwonge will be going to Canada to settle,” Maxwell Manda, a cousin of Tiwonge Chimbalanga’s, told Maravipost.com in an exclusive interview Thursday. “He is just finalising travel documents.”

Manda said Chimbalanga, or Aunt Tiwo, who currently ekes out a living by doing odd jobs, will find a career in his adopted country.

“Some people will host him for some three years then after that he will find what to do,” he said. “We have advised him not to mess this opportunity.”

According to Gift Tapence of the Centre for the Development of People, Tiwonge’s passport is ready. A visa from Canada is expected next week.

Tiwonge and Steven broke up following their release from prison. Sadly, Monjeza’s life has spiraled downhill since then. Last week, Monjeza was given a one year suspended sentence for stealing a mobile phone.

I thought Monjeza got back on the “straight” and narrow, married a woman and lived happily ever after.

Good luck Tiwonge. Maybe you’ll finally be able to be who you are without the utter stupidity of our fellow Africans to hold you back.

Shame on you Timothy. I thought better of you than to contribute to the gayjacking of Tiwonge’s repeatedly and clearly established Trans Identity. I exzpect it of trash like the Advocate and the Billerico project but from you? I’m deeply deeply disappointed. It’s one thing to quote someone else using male pronouns, but for you to add to the long list of people focusing solely on Tiwonge’s birth sex as it relates to the “same sex marriage” they were arrested for, and make absolutely no attempt to mention her gender is extremely disappointing Timothy. I expect far better of you.

Considering how fired up you are about getting people’s identity accurate, you might want to note that I didn’t write this commentary. Jim and I have distinctly different identities.

You may also wish to check out Jim’s rather thoughtful commentary on Tiwonge’s identity.


ps. If you wish to offer an apology after reading Jim’s previous commentary, I’m sure he’d happily accept it.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
