  1. I understand the state of Israel has an award called The Righteous Among the Nations to honour those principled non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jewish people during the Holocaust.

    There should be a similar category to honour those non-gays who take a disinterested and principled stance in our favour.

    Michel Togue is certainly an outstanding candidate for that award in my book, for what that’s worth.

    He is a hero!

    1. Indeed the word ‘hero’, which is dreadfully overused these days, in this instance is wholly appropriate!

      1. Absolutely – what a man.

        Now, had this been a thread about homophobia in Cameroon, we’d be seeing 50+ posts demanding that aid be stopped. But when someone does something worthy and heroic, no one cares.

  3. It’s bloody appalling that this man of such upstanding morals and integrity should have death threats leveled at his family just because he is doing RIGHT and standing up for equality? Because he wants to see everybody…regardless of who they are, happy and able to love who they want. It make me want to weep with despair. Shame on them and everyone like them. I wish him well and I sincerely hope he and his family stay safe. He is a VERY brave man.
