It has once again happened that intellectual freedom has been
curtailed in Uganda following the raid by police of an
anti-discrimination play by Talented Ugandan Kuchus/queers (TUK/q), a
group of young talented performers whose message is of
non-discrimination. The production titled "Lighting the Shadows" was
this evening rudely interrupted by one gentleman who had several
policemen to back him. The audience was dispersed and so was the cast.
Every one was ordered out of the theater. The coalition was one of the
major sponsors of this advocacy event to which the public as well as
the diplomatic corps were invited
