Their bravery is inspirational.
this is an important issue. my friend was deported for doing very good reporting in uganda about the dangers of homophobia and state-sanctioned violence and oppression there against gays. her life was seriously in danger when she left. this rally is a welcome sight, and your awareness of the issue will surely help their plight for ending the brutality in uganda. thanks guys.
