Gay Pride Events in Uganda

“The importance of this Pride event cannot be understated. The fact that these brave activists could pull this off in this milieu of persecution is a great victory for the community. Visibility like this notes the ongoing legacy of late activist David Kato, it defies the export of American Evangelical hate, and it helps ensure defeat of the Bahati Bill. It shows leadership for all of Africa, and above all it shows that the LGBT people of Uganda simply refuse to give up their right to exist and to live their natural born sexual orientation.”

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.
