Uganda Police Disrupt and Shut Down Event Organised To Celebrate the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT)

“The actions taken by Police on a day dedicated to fighting homophobia and transphobia goes to show why this day is important and why we must continue the fight. It also goes to show how institutionalized homophobia is. We are sad but take solace in the fact that the bigger statement about the state of the rights of LGBT people in Uganda has been made. We call upon National allies and development partners to continue to support efforts to ensure that all Ugandans enjoy their constitutionally guaranteed rights” said Nicholas Opiyo, the Executive Director of Chapter Four Uganda.
