By ICASA 2021, Holding Uganda To Scrutiny: Protecting The Right To Life and Freedoms of Queer Uganda

Uganda is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. The beauty is in three parameters: the people, the climate and nature. In fact she is known by the following monikers: Pearl, Gifted and Source of the Nile.

Uganda the beautiful and bountiful

Uganda is also known for putting up model social development initiatives. They put up one of the most aggressive fight against HIV under the able stewardship of His Excellency Dr. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. 

But, prejudice toward those living with HIV, LGBTIQQ and other marginalized population groups is threatening to derail so many positive social development campaigns.

The Seven Asks
We hope that by ICASA 2021, Uganda will also be counted as one of the African countries where LGBTIQQ are:
1. Living and enjoying their right to life
2. Able to report to security agents cases of abuse and expect to be treated equally and fairly
3. Able to enjoy the freedoms that enhance beneficence
4. Able to continue and be retained in education facilities until completion to acquire qualifications
5. Able to apply for a job and be provided support to be effective employees
6. Able to access health care services without fear for discrimination
7. Able to contribute fully to the Ugandan community through participating fully in social activities

These seven (7) asks are only minimal but it will be a start. Uganda can protect all her citizens and in doing right to LGBTIQQ Uganda will set the pace for entrenching contexts for dignity, respect and protection for all persons.
