Benefit for Ugandan LGBT rights in Orlando

Saturday, May 3rd 6:30 – 8:30 pm

First Unitarian Church of Orlando, 1901 E Robinson St. Orlando, FL    co-Sponsored by Equality Florida

It’s illegal to be gay in Uganda, and has been since colonial times. In recent years, American influence in the form of hate-mongering right wing religious leaders has brought new levels of discrimination to the beleaguered population.

In February of 2014, the Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Act was signed into law by the President of Uganda. This has unleashed increased threats of criminalisation and persecution against the gay community, leading to many Ugandans living in constant fear.

In response, allies are waging peaceful opposition to the legislation and its imported campaign of violence. For years, some have risked their life by holding LGBT conferencesand caring for the children  orphaned by AIDS.

We will hear about the current situation in Uganda from those on the front line to help us understand how we can educate other Americans about this monstrous violation of human rights.

Suggested donation: $5.00 for individuals, $10.00 for families of 2 or more.
