Yesterday saw the ugandan exiled community of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, and Transgender persons (LGBTI) in Denmark with support from the Danish community showing their disagree to the new law in place to criminalize homosexual acts branded by the government as ‘Acts against nature’ and all its promoters despite global criticism mainly from the western world were these rights are respected and tolerated. This took place on Friday, March 7 at 4:00pm in UTC+01 Hellerup Station in Hellerup, Kobenhavn, Denmark.
Kuchu Diaspora Alliance LGBTI Advocacy community group spearheaded by Nakiganda Hasifah a human rights activist, is saluted to have had such a successful demonstration that helped much show that part of the world of a plight the LGBT community in Uganda is yet to face under this newly signed odious law that violates human rights targeting homosexuals because of their right to love whom they wish.
It should be remembered that the law was signed into force by President Museveni and ever since its passage, there has been increased crackdown on the community and much violence and as such many LGBTI persons have fled the country in order to have their lives saved.
Basing on such an example to the world from that corner of the world, we urge all the other kuchus that have been exiled on grounds of sexuality to come out and raise their voices against these laws that have been noted by international community as ‘human rights threatening’
Many demonstrations of such a cause should be encouraged all over the world so that these laws are repealed. We deserve to be free for what we were born to be without being discriminated against for we are not second class citizens.
The struggle you are in today is shaping a better tomorrow for the future generations that will appreciate your efforts.
