Call Me Kuchu: film about gay people in Uganda

Call Me Kuchu is a documentary about unbelievably brave Ugandans who are risking their lives to advocate for gay rights in the country. I'm glad the United States government is no longer going to give money to organizations like the Inter-Religious Council of Uganda, which supports Uganda's horrendous anti-gay law.

Same-sex relationships are currently illegal in Uganda—as they are in many sub-Saharan African countries—punishable by incarceration in prison for up to 14 years. A special motion to introduce the legislation was passed a month after a two-day conference was held in which three American Christians asserted that homosexuality is a direct threat to the cohesion of African families.
