Persons Marginalized and Aggrieved (PEMA) Kenya

Persons Marginalized and Aggrieved (PEMA) Kenya was founded within a context of tragedy and the desire to restore human dignity in primordial state of vulnerability. A young gay man shunned and stigmatized by his family because of his sexual orientation, died in May 2008. There was no one to honour his memory or give him a decent burial. Stunned by such level of loathing for gay people, a group of gay men in Mombasa came together to find a descent and dignified resting place for him. It was from this coming together of the gay men to support one of their own that gave birth to the Brotherhood now PEMA Kenya registered on the 6th of August 2009 as a Community Based Organization (CBO).
