Zanzibar Hates Queen (and Queens)

Why anyone would go to the repressive country of Zanzibar to celebrate Freddie Mercury of Queen's 60th birthday is beyond me: even he never seemed to go back to that miserable little country. In any case, local Muslims (who managed to pass an anti-gay ban in 2004 -- presumably, before that it was just assumed being gay was a crime) plan to protest anyone who shows up for a beach party on the anniversary of Mercury's birth.
