Liberia to Vote on Bill that Could Imprison Gays for 10 years
The good news is that it will likely get vetoed.
A Liberian senator says the Senate will consider a bill to strengthen the West African nation’s existing anti-gay laws.
Senator Joseph Nagbe, chair of the Judicial Committee, says the bill will appear before Senate on Thursday.
Liberia’s former first lady, Senator Jewel Taylor, submitted a bill last week that would prohibit same-sex marriage and make homosexuality a first-degree felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
