The fact  that we as a community have advanced in so many was over the past year sounds so hopeful until we take a look at pur LGBT brothers and sisters who are STILL faced with such a simple but evil form of hate. According to the article, there is a group of LGBT rights activist who are in Malawi as we speak and are focused on trying to change the bill there in favor of gays. I sincerely hope they can do something about these crazy inhumane rules and poor standard of living they are forcing people to live by! Its not right!
