Call me Kuchu

Last week I finally took advantage of one of the fantastic events at the Frontline Club and went to a screening of the documentary ‘Call me Kuchu‘.

The film has just been officially released and there are screenings taking place worldwide, so where ever you may be – try to get along to one. Seeing the film highlighted to me just how much is going on in the world all the time that so many of us are largely unaware of.

The film explores the controversial proposed ‘Anti-Homosexuality bill‘ in Uganda and looks at how the LGBT community in Uganda have been fighting for rights and some of the challenges they have faced.  During the production of the film, David Kato, the first openly gay Ugandan and a leading activist was murdered, highlighting the issue further to the international community.

The bill is currently back on the cards and being considered once again in Uganda so the film has been released at a crucial time.
