Combating Homophobia in Uganda

May 11, 2017

It is not uncommon for gays and lesbians in Uganda and other African countries to be arrested, beaten and suffer discrimination. Many are ostracized from their families and communities and find it difficult to attend school or find employment. We discuss an ongoing project, initiated by a Provincetown video historian, to allow Ugandans to share their stories with one another and create alliances between the gay and straight communities.
