Where Do the Lies About LGBTIs in Africa Come From?

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 17:48:25 -0400

The most effective way to counter lies is to tell the truth again and again: African LGBTIs are not awash with money. Declaring yourself pro-gay does not incite a tidal wave of Western cash to come your way. LGBTIs are not a foreign contagion.
