First gay character
Kenya will see its first positive depiction of a homosexual as a major character on a TV show when the second season of young adult drama Shuga returns this year.
When the show resumes on February 14, viewers will be introduced to openly gay Rayban, who is described as “flamboyant and stylish … but keeps a low profile in public because of homophobia in Kenya”.
Rayban is the best friend of two of the show’s lead female characters.
The first season of Shuga was considered groundbreaking in lifting the lid on the sex lives of young Kenyans.
