Ilost my job after the Red pepper published alist of homosexuals including my name and the boss even threatened me to hand over me to police and now following the recent publication of the rolling stone saying that gays are after recruiting children i got insults from some people how threat ed to kill me if they see me talking with any of their children. This has forced me to move away from that area and i fear going to village as most of the people in the village are aware that am agay so am not safe anything can happen to me anytime but i can not change my identity and i can not trust anybody now . so life is full of isolation ,insults threats and violence its quite problematic Gays and Lesbians rights Uganda GLRU
