Inspired by American evangelicals who have christened Uganda ground zero in their war on the “homosexual agenda,” new legislation in the Ugandan parliament threatens to make homosexuality punishable by death. David Kato, the country’s first openly gay man, and his fellow activists work tirelessly to defeat the bill while courageously combating vicious persecution in their daily lives. Winner of the Teddy Award for Best Documentary at the 2012 Berlin Film Festival, this riveting documentary illuminates both the political complexities of the new global struggles for LGBT rights and the everyday courage of its most dedicated advocates in Uganda.

Skype Q&A with with co-directors, Malika Zouhali-Worrall and Katherine Fairfax Wright.

Co-sponsored by the Departments of Political Science and African American Studies, the LGBT Studies Program and the LGBT Resource Center.
