Come Hear a Ugandan LGBT Activist Speak: Frank Mugisha, March 22 & 23

PRA (Political Research Associates) is thrilled to host a three-city speaking tour for Frank Mugisha, a leader of Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG) from March 20-March 31. He’s coming to New York!

Frank will be joined by our own Kapya Kaoma, author of the groundbreaking PRA report, Globalizing the Culture Wars: U.S. Conservatives, African Churches, and Homophobia. The anti-homosexuality bill now before the Ugandan legislature is just the latest in a series of attacks on LGBTI people and their allies. Join us to hear firsthand from Africans who have witnessed the realities facing LGBTI people in Uganda. Learn how U.S. religious fundamentalists have contributed to “collateral damage” for Ugandan sexual minorities while pursuing their own agendas.

This event is co-sponsored by Astraea Foundation and SMUG.
