Senegal Is “Not Ready to Decriminalize Homosexuality”

While on a visit to Africa in July, President Obama encouraged African leaders to extend equal rights to gays and lesbians, but was met with strong opposition from Senegalese President Macky Stall. Senegal's penal code imposes prison sentences of up to five years and fines of up to $3,000 for committing "an improper or unnatural act with a person of the same sex."
