The historic 2015 US Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage put the US on par with over 20 other nations in advancing the LGBTQ movement. However, countries like Uganda have done the opposite, passing laws that criminalize homosexuality. Despite an overall increase of enactments protecting LGBTQ rights, global prejudice continues to deter the movement. Currently homosexuality is punishable in 10 countries across Africa and the Middle East, and events like Uganda’s Pride festival—where activists were imprisoned, and the Orlando gay nightclub shooting, a response to the rise in hate crimes across the US—highlight the level of backlash against sexual minorities. Join the Council on Global Affairs, Frank Mugisha, one of Uganda's most prominent LGBTQ campaigners, and Chicago based activist Jane Saks, for a discussion on how we can overcome discrimination and injustices towards sexual minorities in Uganda and globally.
