Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG) has partnered with Ice Breakers Uganda (IBU) and yesterday, launched their campaign dubbed See the Invisible. The campaign is aimed at bringing visibility to the growing burden of mental health illness in Uganda, especially amongest the LGBT community.
The documentary titled See Me As covers a wide range of different events that transpired in the Ugandan LGBTI movement over the course of the last four years; it highlights the movement’s achievements as well as the rights violations experienced by LGBTI identifying persons which include but are not limited to forced anal exams, arbitrary arrests, and police clump down on LGTBI gatherings.
Kuchu Times Media Group (KTMG) is putting together the fourth issue of Bombastic Magazine. There are lots of ways that you can get involved and one of these ways is helping determine the direction of this publication.
Being a community initiative, we thought it best to put the ball in your court. What would you like to see in the next issue, what topics would you love to see addressed, what issues remain untackled or what would you want us (as a community) to debunk?
