Cameroon Court Overturns Conviction Of Men Found Guilty Of “Looking Gay”

Screen Shot 2013-01-07 at 3.06.52 PMOn Monday, a court of appeals in Cameroon has overturned the conviction of two men who were sentenced to five years in prison for having gay mannerisms and ordering Bailey’s Irish Cream (apparently the homosexual drink of choice in Mother Africa.)

Sadly, the two have already spent more than a year in jail, where they were harassed and threatened by guards and other prisoners.

In December, Camaroonian Roger Jean-Claude Mbede, convicted of sending a text that read “I love you” to another man, found his conviction upheld.
