Why Do it?

Because why not? Over the past few weeks, Africa has been making headlining news. From President Obama making a visit to Kenya, to Uganda hosting their own gay pride parade. All of this may not seem like headlining news except for the fact that it’s extremely dangerous to be out in Africa. For these people, Pride means risking everything, including their lives to be free and celebrate who they are.

“We are here to walk for those who can’t walk, who are afraid to walk,” “We are here to celebrate our rights.”One of the voices being heard marching in the parade, Kimbugwe shouted.

It’s pleasure to do what I can to make sure they are able to celebrate their lives.
