For Uganda Gay On Move, it is the second time of attendance representing a minority group of LGBTIQ asylum seekers here in the Netherlands. This event is annually organized by Stichting Africa Life based in the Hague which has come out of the many African organisations in the Netherlands to give open arms to LGBTIQ persons without any bias thus giving them a platform to air out their grievances and views in order to empower them.
