ze deden het overal met elkaar

I have referred before to the Dutch journalist Carien Westerveld. She mingles in literary circles and writes about books and writers. And all of it is in the language of those living in Dutchland.

Her last contribution on her weblog is on a book about the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender (LBGT) community in Kenya. One of the people who features in this book is Rena Otieno, who is an activist and came out of the closet when she was 30 years old.
