The trend of horrors and events ever unfloding in Africa and Uganda are so scaring and need to be addressed by all civilized human beings. Homosexuals are facing alot of suffering from the government and communities .We should not allow people to be tortured , executed, arrested discriminated or abused becauses of being homosexuals , who they love , how they look and who they are. Ugandans need to know that homosexuals are integral part of our society that should not be discriminated or abused the sooner we accept being a gay is not a crime nor amenace to the society the better. Changing peoples minds and decriminalizing homosexuality is an important step in realising equality for all people . I demand for laws and policies in Uganda that will protect everyone's dignity and i call upon all Ugandans to work for a world where all people can enjoy their rights fully
