In February 2010, mob violence broke out in Mombasa over rumors of a same-sex wedding. But compared with its neighbor Uganda, Kenya is a relative safe haven for LGBT people. In October 2010, a Kenyan Cabinet minister called on the government to address the wider concerns of the country’s gay community if it is to make headway in its fight against HIV/AIDS, and in September 2011, Kenya’s Chief Justice denounced the marginalization of the gay community saying “gay rights are human rights.” Nevertheless, homosexuality is illegal in Kenya, punishable by up to fourteen years’ imprisonment.
