Obama Gay Rights

FILE In this May 20, 2010 file photo, women protest against a sentence of 14 years in prison, with hard labor, given to two men in Malawi under Malawi's anti-gay legislation, in the city of Cape Town, South Africa, Thursday, May 20, 2010. The U.S. embassy in Abidjan made history in June 2013 by hosting a gay pride reception attended by about two dozen openly gay Ivorians. Despite the groundbreaking nature of the event, reporters were barred from attending, and the only mention of it was a short blurb on the embassy website posted the following week. The discreet handling of the event encapsulates the Obama administration's cautious promotion of gay rights in Africa, an issue that is likely to come up during his visit beginning June 26, 2013 to three African nations, two of which punish homosexuality with jail time.
