*Emmanuel Kamau is
commonly known as
Aunty Ivy" in Africa

counseling other gay men,
and because in parts of

City Other Sheep Committee for Books to Africa

met in the Bronx with Emmanuel Kamau (Aunty Ivy)
of Nairobi, Kenya, to discus
plans for Ishtar MSM
to host meetings with Other Sheep in Nairobi,
Kenya, this summer (2007)

Out of these two meetings, Ishtar MSM and Other
Sheep discussed the following:

  • Steve Parelli and Jose Ortiz will conduct a
    "safe place" for discussion around
    instruction on issues pertaining to
    homosexuality (this summer in Nairobi,
  • A curriculum will be used that will emphasis
    homosexuality as it relates to different areas
    of topics from religion, to society in general,
    family members, the social sciences and
    psychology, and human rights
  • Targeted participants will be the LGBT
    community and their parents and friends
  • Three different locations in Nairobi will be
    chosen for weekly meeting places in order to
    reach a wider range of people within the city
    of Nairobi
  • "Safe place" classes will run for four weeks
  • Steve and Jose with Emmanuel (Aunty Ivy)
    will use time between classes to meet and
    connect with individuals
  • It is hoped that out of these meetings
    a permanent group of some kind may
    be established
