    I had the great fortune to sit on a panel with a Justice of the Kenyan High Court in 2016. She sent me a beautiful letter thanking me for explaining the hardship these laws cause to LGBTQI people, speaking about the persecution and exile it causes, and she said she was open to a better understanding of sexuality and gender identity. She told me that in one panel discussion she learned so much. I was very touched by her openness and willingness to look at this in a different light. It is so hopeful. Given the judiciary makeup, their understanding of the Constitution, and the fact that they are not politically motivated like the politicians who create and promote the bad laws, I am hopeful that the judiciary could pave the way through its reflection on the constitution, for decriminalizing sexuality and gender identity.
