On this very date (2nd August) last year, Pride Uganda kicked off the one-week festival with an opening gala at one of Kampala's upscale hotels. The gala was attended by several community members, organisation heads, delegates from various foreign missions as well as representatives of different partners. The organizing committee also unveiled the Pride 2016 Grand Marshal Rev Jide Macaulay, an openly gay Nigerian reverend based in the United Kingdom.
As we ready ourselves for this year's Pride, Kuchu Times will, over the next next two weeks, share the highlights from each of the 2016 Pride events in the hope to rejuvenate our sense of unity as a community as well as start a count down to the much anticipated festival this year.
