“Call me Kuchu”

In Uganda, a new “Anti-Homosexuality Bill” proposes death for gay men living with HIV, and prison for anyone who fails to turn in a known homosexual. David Kato, Uganda’s first openly gay man, is one of the few who dare to publicly protest state-sanctioned homophobia. Working with his fellow activists, David fights the government and the tabloids in the courts, on television, and at the United Nations.

Because, he insists, “if we keep on hiding, they will say we’re not here.” But no one is prepared for the brutal murder that shakes their movement to its core and sends shock waves around the world.
