NAIROBI, Kenya, July 21 (UPI) -- An anti-gay political party in Kenya plans to protest against U.S. President Barack Obama by greeting him with 5,000 "totally naked" protesters for his "open and aggressive support for homosexuality."
The Republican Liberty Party's "main objective is for him to see and understand the difference between a man and woman," according to a party statement. The protests will take place Wednesday and Thursday in Nairobi's Freedom Corner within the Uhuru Park starting at 10 a.m.
Homosexual acts are illegal in Kenya and can be punishable by up to 14 years imprisonment.
Anti-gay groups have warned Obama to avoid the subject of gay rights, but he will not heed that warning or ignore the issue, according to the White House. Homophobia runs rampant in Kenya.
"Those who want to engage in those things can go to those countries and not ours," Kenya's Deputy President William Ruto said after the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide.
The anti-gay party plans to supplement its numbers to reach "5,000 totally naked men and women" by teaming up with volunteer sex workers, who are afraid they will lose work if homosexuality is legalized in Kenya.
