Story Summary:

This article gives GALZ ED Chester Samba plenty of space to describe progress for LGBTI people during Zim’s elections.

Topics: Discrimination and Political or religious leaders' statements

LGBTQI+ Identities: Gay, LGBTQI+ (broad unspecified SSOGIE coverage), and Trans/gender nonconforming/gender diverse

Journalistic Issues: Journalistic approach is fair, balanced, objective, Language/terminology is inaccurate/misused but with no apparent malice, and LGBTQI+A voices are sufficient

Rating: 2

Rating Rationale:

It is an objectively reported, affirming account. A quote being attributed to “the gays boss” is a bit strange, but the rest is fine.
