Queer struggles in Uganda: No longer a silence

Kasha Jacqueline presenting on the Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Bill to the UN Summit for Human Rights and Democracy. Kasha discusses the substance of the AHB, the implications for LGBTI persons and the rights of all Ugandans. Most importantly she speaks of the many and continuing acts of resistance and legal successes by LGBTI activists in Uganda. This is evident by the fact that more and more LGBTIQ people are visible today, that discussions ARE taking place and there is no longer a silence.
