February 24, 2014, Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni signed into law a controversial antigay bill. On first conviction for so-called homosexual acts, offenders face a 14 year prison sentence. Subsequent convictions for "aggravated homosexuality" could bring a penalty of life in prison.
A young Ugandan homosexual man, Julius Matovu, tells in an intimate one-on-one how and why he fled to The Netherlands. Where does he come from? What is the situation now and what are his dreams for the future?
