Enough is Enough: LGBTQ People Coming Out, Marrying, Dating...and Facing the Consequences

I heard Morgan Freeman, the actor, last night on PBS, on a show taped in the White House, celebrating the history of African American people. Freeman made told the story of the one day when African American people simply one day said, "Enough is enough...and no army, no military, no police officers, no sheriff, no governor, no President, could stop the liberation and civil rights movement."

This is what is happening on the continent of Africa, be it Malawi, Uganda, or in today's news, Kenya. From the Daily Nation:

A same-sex marriage that was planned to take place in the coastal town failed to take off as two men who announced the wedding went into hiding.

Police were forced to intervene to save the three men who residents had accused of being "notorious gays" who were behind the spread of the practice in the town.

Two men suspected of being a couple by residents were flushed out of their apartment within the town and police found wedding rings on their fingers.
