Diana Zeyneb Alhindawi – Pride Uganda

Between August 5th and 9th, 2015, the LGBT community in Uganda held their fourth Pride celebration despite the country being one of the worst in the world for LGBT rights. Moreover, the turnout was larger than ever before. As with previous Pride celebrations, the events were held in “secret”: they were not advertised to the public, and took place in private locations disclosed to members of the LGBT community and their supporters only a few days before an event. The program included presentations on issues of concern to LGBTs, a Mister and Miss Pride competition, a Pride march, and various other performances and festivities.
