    Couple refuse to hide despite one of them being beaten up by his brother

    "A Kenyan gay couple say they have become the first to publicly marry, but it is a decision that has led to them being forced to flee the country.
    Edwin and Isaiah are living in what they describe as a ‘cave’ following their wedding in February.

    The two are now hoping to make it to Tanzania or Zanzibar in the hopes of asylum."

    There government does not need to believe in same-sex love. It would greatly help if they simply believed in live and let live.
