Over the years, several events in Uganda have happened that have impacted the human rights of LGBTQ persons. Many of these events have been fueled by religion, culture/personal beliefs as well as judicial decisions and politics, thus explain the prevailing homophobia that has overtime become normal in the Ugandan community. This consequently has led to negative outcomes for the LGBTQ community hence infringing on their human rights ranging from; The Right to Equality and Freedom from Discrimination, The Freedom for Expression, Freedom from Arbitrary arrest and Prolonged Detention, The Right to Dignity and Freedom from Torture, Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment and Punishment.
Many of Uganda's LGBTQ persons have been victims of violence, social injustice and discrimination, abandonment by their families, leading them to live in fear of their lives, with many of them struggling to survive economically.
As minorities, this story seeks to project their voices and views on democracy, while highlighting their experiences of injustice in a period that Uganda goes into a presidential and parliamentary election.
