Show Notes

Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni recently enacted one of the strictest anti-LGBTQ laws in the world, providing for the death penalty for "aggravated homosexuality." Although same-sex relationships were already considered illegal in Uganda, as in over 30 African countries, the new law goes a step further. This law provides for the death penalty for "repeat offenders" who both violate the law and transmit a deadly disease such as HIV/AIDS through homosexual acts. It also provides for a 20-year prison sentence for those who "promote" homosexuality.

In this presentation, activist Jay Mulucha will lead a wide-ranging discussion of the current situation of LGBTQ persons in Uganda and highlight their efforts as activists in an environment where homosexuality is punishable by death. Jay Mulucha is a transgender man from Uganda and a dedicated activist for transgender and human rights. He serves as the executive director and founder of Fem Alliance Uganda, an LGBTQ organization that brings together LGBTQ individuals in Uganda to advocate for the respect and protection of their rights.

This lecture delves into the dire consequences of Uganda's new anti-LGBTIQ law and the tremendous challenges faced by LGBTQ individuals in the country, as presented by Jay Mulucha, an esteemed advocate for LGBTQ rights in Uganda.
