Love on the run (user currently living in UGANDA) posted for lesbian readers on 21/01/2014 tagged with hate crime and violence prevention +5

Today many Ugandans can not have a voice because they have chosen to be gay or lesbian. They face too much hate from the public and some have been lynched to death.

Recently the head of the Muslim community vowed to his congregation to kill them. He called upon his congregation not to spare them. This has inspired me to make a short film of what inhumane brutality the LGBT Community faces today in Uganda.

Through crowd funding we call for your support financially and morally to help us make this film.
