Uganda IDAHO Report 2012


Activists in Uganda organized a four-day event with the theme “Don’t Punish Love, Punish Violence” in commemoration of IDAHO 2012.
There was an event to bring partners from CSOs, friends, medical workers and LGBTI people in the same space to interact with one another. Activities included counseling, storytelling, a documentary showcase and discussions.
Activists also appealed to the government to end the abuse of gays. “As we today mark 2012 International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia, the LGBTI community calls on the Parliament of Uganda to reject the Anti-Homosexuality Bill that is still pending in Parliament, that incites unnecessary hatred and violence in the communities where we live and makes us daily targets for hate crimes, making it impossible for us to live freely.”
