The Albinism Society of Kenya have held a Mr and Miss Albinism beauty pageant in Nairobi to support those with the hereditary condition.

Albinism is a rare, hereditary condition that leads to a lack of pigmentation in the hair, skin and eyes. Without melanin in their skin, those with albinism are more vulnerable to the damaging effects of the sun.

Mr and Miss Albinism, held in November, aimed to help combat the discrimination and violence frequently faced by the group.

In Africa, albinism is associated with many negative misconceptions and superstitions. As a result, many albinos suffer stigma, alienation and even physical abuse. wow that's so raycis!

The pageant, called "Accept me, include me, I can", included participants from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, and aimed to boost the confidence of young people with albinism.




Not so much 'celebrating being white' as 'trying to get their citizens to stop murdering albinos to use their body parts in traditional "magic" rituals'.


Ah, that actually cute. Those little Abinos do suffer a lot and it's nice people want to do something for them – besides cut their fingers and eyes out.


dont quite a few places in afrika eat the albinos?

so basically the winner gets spared and losers get eaten?



Gimmie yo hand wytie. I need yo hand for muh magic big-dik powder.


They look Chinese. I never realized Chinese were just pale nogs.
