The Goethe Institut is hosting the fifth annual film festival of LGBT-themed films from Africa and worldwide.
The festival includes films and discussions to encourage the underground gay communities in Kenya to speak out.
The festival, organised in conjunction with Gay Kenya, comes at a time when anti-gay sentiment on the continent is increasingly strident and countries such as Uganda are tightening anti-gay legislation.
During his recent visit to Nairobi, US president Barack Obama spoke out in favour of LGBT rights at his meeting with Kenya’s president, Uhuru Kenyatta.
