Breaking the Silence – Status of Kenyan WSW 2013


Kenyan women who have sex with women (WSW) as well as Kenyan men who have sex with men (MSM) face widespread discrimination, abuse and violence largely because of their sexual orientation(s) and/or gender expression. Although a number of WSW may choose to publicly identify as lesbian or bisexual, most do not reveal their sexual orientation(s) to their families, physicians, colleagues and others.
