The fight is NOT over.
Just a month and a half ago, Uganda was gearing up to celebrate the beautiful existence of their LGBTQ people.
Unfortunately they were unable to parade down their streets of Kampala due to Simon Lokodo, State Minister of Ethics & Integrity, shutting down the gathering. “It’s true I ordered the police to stop and shut down all the gay pride events. No gay gathering and promotion can be allowed in Uganda. We can’t tolerate it at all,” said Lokodo (source: the guardian.com)
“We know they are trying to recruit and promote homosexuality secretly. But it’s worse to attempt to stand and exhibit it in public arena. This is totally unacceptable. Never in Uganda.”
These words rings true for the people of Uganda: NEVER IN UGANDA.
We must stand and act against those who have chosen to act against us.
I’ll be visiting Uganda on November 29th, and learning more from the ground on what it’s like to live in the area of Kampala Uganda. If you’d like to learn more, subscribe to my newsletter, and make sure you follow me on facebook and instagram!
