Gays in Africa are going through hell as you read this, but there is some good news coming out of Cameroon: two men were acquitted by an appeals court Monday after they were arrested and tried for looking gay while ordering Baileys Irish Cream in a bar.The men were originally sentenced to five years in prison.
Cameroon has harsh anti gay laws. Jean Claude Mbede wasn’t lucky on December 17. The court upheld his sentence after he was jailed for texting “I love you” to another man. He will spend five years in jail.
