The trailer for an award-winning film about the inordinately brave folk risking their lives to advocate gay rights in Uganda.

In Uganda, a new bill [the Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Act 2014, previously known as the ‘Kill The Gays Bill’] threatens to make homosexuality punishable by death. David Kato, Uganda’s first openly gay man, and retired Anglican Bishop Christopher Senyonjo work against the clock to defeat state-sanctioned homophobia while combating vicious persecution in their daily lives. But no one is prepared for the brutal murder that shakes their movement to its core and sends shock waves around the world.

Iowa Gay MarriageThis evening.

J Carl White writes:

Hi guys, I’m surprised you haven’t posted anything about the repeal of DOMA [Defence of Marriage Act] in the United States. This is huge news! Same sex people who have married can now receive federal benefits that were previously denied them. Equality at last! I am a Dubliner who has lived in the US since 1989. Myself and my partner, Miles have been together 23 years, married under California law for the last six, and this is the day we’ve been waiting for. Please post something about this momentous news, G’wan!

 

We’d better get an invite.
