The culture originated in Western countries and spread fast to African countries. Members of the community are identified by the display of the Rainbow colours. Their dress is distinct from the rest, and in most cases, they wear a rainbow mark to aid with identification.
Countries such as Uganda have already signed a bill protecting homosexuals and lesbians into law.
