The Attack on Gay Rights in Uganda Kasha Jacqueline (Nabagesera)

2012 San Francisco Freedom Forum
September 28, 2012

Ugandan LGBT rights activist Kasha Jacqueline talks about the plight of the homosexual community in her country. Jacqueline describes the horrifying witch-hunt currently taking place in her country—a movement that threatens citizens with life imprisonment simply on the basis of their sexuality. Jacqueline implores the international community not to forget the ongoing struggle, but warns against economic sanctions, as earlier attempts resulted in the regime using the homosexual community as scapegoats.
