MCK Official is one of the bravest gospel musicians in Kenya. And why is that? The musician has come out to speak about gay rights and lent his support to the marginalised LGBTQ community in this country.
The musician was interviewed by Xtian Dela on his YouTube channel and explained to Dela that his decision to speak out for gay rights was motivated by his gay friend’s horrible experiences in Kenya.
The singer said that he found it hypocritical for Christians to claim they love each other yet they cannot tolerate homose3uals and they would even chase them from churches. He also added,
This is a conversation that needs to be highlighted. If people don’t do. If it has to start from me then, I will do it.
MCK revealed that there are many good gay people out there who have been forced to live a lie by marrying women and having families for fear of coming out and getting harassed.
The gospel star held people should stop discriminating against gay people. It is not yet clear if MCK is himself gay or he is just chasing clout but countless photos on his Instagram account leave a lot of questions for the black and white thinker.
The singer’s defense of gay people comes barely a week after a Rwandese gospel star Albert Nabonibo revealed he was gay. The issue of gay rights in Kenya has become a hot-button topic for a loud minority. On 24 May, the High Court of Kenya refused an order to declare sections 162 and 165 unconstitutional.
The state does not recognise any relationships between persons of the same se3; same-se3 marriage is banned under the Kenyan Constitution since 2010.
