BREAKING NEWS The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) has declared all films containing LGBTQ+ content illegal in Kenya. Section 165 of the Penal Code outlaws homosexuality, adding that any films or broadcast content appearing to legalize, advocate, normalize or glorify the act contravenes the laws and is, therefore, unacceptable as well as demeaning to Christianity as two gay men in the film purport to conduct a religious marriage invoking the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. According to Wambua, the film was produced with funding from several foreign organizations. He observed that while the Board welcomes local and foreign support local film industry, such funding should focus on production of content that is aligned with the laws, adding that international filmmakers must strictly adhere to the provisions of the Films and Stage Plays Act Cap222 of the laws of Kenya by acquiring filming licenses as well as submitting their content for examination and classification for age suitability. #LGBTQ
