INTERVIEW WITH DENNIS IRAGUHA
Who is Dennis Iraguha and what do you do?
First of all I am so glad to have this opportunity to share my story with the world. I am Chaplain Dennis Iraguha, the founder and Executive Director of The Liberty Africa Youth Foundation (TLAYF) which is an LGBTI faith based organisation. I used to work at Bishop Christopher Senyonjo’s St. Paul’s Reconciliation and Equality Center (SPREC), where I served as both chaplain and overseer for outreach missions. In February 2014 when the President signed the Anti-Homosexuality Bill into law, things became so complicated and some of our friends and clients had to flee for asylum.I was also worried about my own safety.
After consultations from friends abroad, Bishop Joseph Tolton referred me to Annie Craig to discuss the situation in Uganda and how best to keep our clients safe. From the discussions, The Liberty Africa Youth Foundation was born. We started out as five members but have grown to a family of over fifty members. We are also legally registered as a community based organisation.
