This is what people are saying about life for LGBTI people in UGANDA...
Most at risk populations' Society In Uganda (user currently living in UGANDA) posted for gay lesbian transgender bisexual intersex straight readers on 08/02/2012 tagged with hate crime and violence prevention, health, hiv/aids , human rights

In a democracy, one has to allow room and space to listen to the other side arguing their case. Much the same way is expected for one to be listened to. The Anti Homosexuality Bill, 2009 as well as 2 other stigmatizing and discriminating bills (The HIV Bill and Equal Opportunities Bill)will continue to find their way on the floor of parliament. Even as a practicing physician, the volunteer spirit to treat the "gay" will be stepped upon! There is a fear of repercussions for such reaching out. As long as the HIV Bill,2009 is still mentioned ( like yesterday, 07/02/2012) morale, motivation and effort to roll back HIV/STIs will also die!!
