They need to be on the next flight to a European country and start a new life together.

I heard that interview with the Malawi Minister of Gender and Children and she sounded like a completely mindless homophobe, referencing the Bible, God's creation of man and woman (and not man and man).

Happily, I do not think the Malawi people will prevent the couple from leaving the country, since they can then maintain the illusion that the only gay and/or gender-noncomforming people have no place in Malawi. It would be hard on the relatives of the couple, though.

Actually they do not need to go to Europe to live life freely. South Africa provides equality for its gay ,lesbian, and trans citizens, although I suspect South Africa would be reluctant to offer asylum as it usually is loathe to interfere with the "sovereignty" of other African nations (i.e. Zimbabwe). Furthermore, there are a number of African countries where homosexuality is not illegal and where these countries have signed the UN declaration on sexual orientation and gender identity. (Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Gabon, Guinea-Bissau, Mauritius, Sao Tome e Principe) Lets be careful not to paint Africa in a broad stroke.

God bless them and keep them. I also think they might have a better time of it in Europe or Canada. Though some nations in Africa have de-criminalized gay sex, there is still a lot of cultural disapproval of homosexuality. Even South Africa, which has lgbt rights written into its constitution, has experienced violent attacks against gays and lesbians and there are cultural taboos against homosexuality. Of course, you could say the same about the U.S....

I've been off the grid for a few days with this past weekend's Miami foolishness, but I'm so pleased to come back and read of their release.

I wouldn't expect Malawai law to change as quickly as the tide on this situation has, so my advice to these two is to count their blessings and get the f*ck outta dodge. Peace and happiness to them both.
