Ugandan Gay Activist Speaks Out About 'Kill the Gays' Bill: VIDEO

Nabagesera

Truthloader spoke with Kasha Jacqueline Nabagesera, founder and executive director of LGBT rights group Freedom and Roam Uganda, whom as you may recall was honored last year by the Geneva-based Martin Ennals Foundation with its annual prize for human rights defenders as "an exceptional woman of a rare courage, fighting under death threats for human dignity and the rights of homosexuals and marginalized people in Africa."

Nabagesera talks about the consequences of the anti-homosexuality bill for her, her partner, and other LGBT people and allies living in Uganda.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

In related news, activist group Sum of Us is calling on Pepsi to speak out against the bill.

But our allies on the ground tell us that if Pepsi, which has a huge presence in Uganda, speaks out against the bill and the harmful effect it would have on investment and economic development in Uganda, it would force Ugandan officials to put the bill on hold -- or even pull it entirely.

  1. We should also ask Coke to step up to the plate. They also have an HRC 100% rating.

  2. It breaks my heart seeing people being targeted for the gender they are attracted to or feel they are through no fault of their own.

  3. WHAT IS SHE STILL DOING THERE? I'm all for fighting the good fight but these people aim to kill her for being who she is. Is there any sort of asylum that she can get to go elsewhere?

  4. Ok, she wants to hit on fellow girls, no problem. SHE JUST CANT DO IT IN UGANDA. F**k the world for wanting these fags to live openly among us. What shes doing is wrong. Pretty soon we shall legalize other predatory behaviors like pedophiles, etc. I am warning her , If i land my hands on her .....
