Media personality Anita Nderu does not shy away from showing her support to the queer community.

Today, she took to her social media to show solidarity with the community after some members took to the streets of Nairobi to protest a directive by Education CS George Magoha to have gay students out of boarding schools.

Through her social media, Anita regretted that she couldn't attend the peaceful march on Thursday morning.

She added that she will do all she can to show her support to them.

Check out her post;

"Showing solidarity with my beloved LGBTQ+ community today. I regret I couldn't make it to the march that happened this morning but I'll never cease to support the movement in every way I can as an ally.

A petition has been delivered to the Ministry of Education addressed to the CS in regards to disallowing students to attend boarding school due to their gender identity.

We all have a right to education! The injustice behind the recent decision by the Ministry of Education is discrimination.

We need more awareness & education pertaining to the community as opposed to creating laws as a result of ignorance, propaganda, entitlement or silence from the non oppressed.

Students torching schools needs to be investigated as opposed to finding a scapegoat in order to avoid addressing the issue.

We shine in so many aspects as a country but refuse to accept basic human rights.

Thank you @marylize_biubwa @makenanjeri @boldnetworkafrica and each and every one of you who marched today, as well as support the community in every way you can.

As we await an answer from the CS of education, let us continue to vocalize what is happening and fight for the rights of the LGBTQ+ community‚̧"
