Kenyan Court Outlaws Anal Exam to Test Homosexuality

The Court of Appeal has ruled that the use of forced anal exams used to determine whether homosexual men engaged in sex is illegal. This landmark victory for gay rights comes after two men suspected of having sex were subjected to forced anal examination by police and staff at a public hospital in Mombasa in 2015.
