A little ray of sunshine through the gloom.
About 100 people gathered on a Ugandan beach last weekend to celebrate LGBT solidarity in an increasingly anti-gay country — and to have fun.
The event, called Kuchus’ Day Out, was organized by the anti-AIDS and pro-LGBT rights advocacy group Youth on Rock Foundation. The word “kuchu” — Ugandan slang for “gay” — is a term that LGBT people have reclaimed as their own.
We hope everyone had a fabulous time.
