Quotes

"Homosexuality is seen as something contagious. That is why a homosexual should be separated from other children not to `contaminate’ them. In other cultures like the Bamocha or the Kabare in South Kivu province], if your child is homosexual his genitals should be mutilated because they have no meaning."
"When my family learnt that I was gay, I was banished and abandoned. They treated me as if I were cursed, a deviant, an Antichrist. I quit school because no one could pay my fees. My friends are very homophobic [although] some are tolerant, especially the girls. "
