      Has he consulted any Ugandan gay men on how this might actually adversely affect them?
      Still, hooray for brave closeted Hollywood stars!
      YAY!

      His closeted stature makes anything like this seem…..off.

      @fagburn: Should we all just ignore the plight of Ugandan LGBTs? I understand your concern, but are we really going to attack Spacey for helping to bring more visibility to the issue?

      @fagburn: I get your concern, but should we be attacking Spacey for bringing more visibility to the plight of Ugandan LGBTs? Is it better that he not do this?

      @Aidan8: We should be asking gay Ugandans – I really do not know.
      But putting the play on in Uganda – by a white English man – let the authorities continue their crass saw that they are being attacked by western cultural/sexual imperialism.
      It’s simplistic to think any pro-gay action will be of benefit, if you ignore the first Hippocratic oath; “First, do no harm”.

      emotional hypocrites shouldn’t be telling people how to live their lives..just sounds jealous and snippy….Kevin sounds heroic to me..

      How is it “heroic” to put on a reading of a play about the problems of being out in Uganda when you’re not out in Hollywood?

      @fagburn: ??? It’s a play by a Ugandan playwright being staged in London. How is a Ugandan playwright hurting Ugandans by writing about their plight?

      “Openly Oscar winning Actor Kevin Spacey…” now that was my best laugh of the day.
