You might say they know how to grab a headline.
An anti-gay political party in Kenya has vowed to greet President Obama when he visits later this week with 5,000 “totally naked” male and female protesters.
They aim to express dismay over Obama’s recent support for gay rights and impress upon him the difference between a man and a woman — a difference Obama will no doubt be able to absorb when not shielding his eyes.
According to a statement by the Republican Liberty Party, published by the Nairobi Times, the naked protesters are taking a stand against “Obama’s open and aggressive support for homosexuality.”
Where will they find 5,000 people willing to let it all hang out in the name of homophobia? According to Republican Liberty Party leader Kidaha Vincent, the party will be supplementing its numbers with volunteer sex workers. He claims the sex workers have agreed to work free of charge because they are afraid they will lose work if homosexuality is legalized. The oppressive climate for gays in Kenya means those seeking intercourse with same-sex partners often resort to prostitution.
