Guilty Of Being Gay, Ctd

Over the weekend, Tiwonge Chimbalanga and Steven Monjeza were pardoned by the Malawian president after he met with the UN secretary general. Joe My God is joyous. Queerty cautions:

[W]hile pardoning them and asking for their unconditional release, [president] Mutharika made sure to add, "These boys committed a crime against our culture, our religion and our laws." Malawi culture still considers their engagement ceremony an unnatural act of gross indecency and just because they're released doesn't mean that other Malawi LGBTs won't ever face a similar fate. ... [Chimbalanga and Monjeza] may still love their country. They should get out of it while they can.

Indeed, the couple is considering asylum to escape retribution from neighbors. Come to America.
