From the findings, it was reported that they replied that the media just prints or talk about issues that in most cases are taken lightly. Others thought that the media representation in most cases is biased and they cannot be relied on to combat homosexuality. Many respondents were of the view that due to increasing technological development and unemployment, homosexuality is only rising up across media houses as they prefer to make money. Homosexuals are rich people and have the power to control media houses. Further findings revealed that most of them admitted that almost all cases of homosexuality are detected through the media. It is after the media talks or prints about homosexuality cases that the police usually intervenes.

firsthand. The media should avoid promoting homosexuality by talking good to publically or
stereotypically known homosexuals, lesbians and guys. the media need to give thorough news that is based on facts not only to sell because many policy makers in government uses them to come up with national policies and laws that become bidding to all of us.
