A Look Inside The Horrifying Reality Of Being Gay In Uganda

Screen Shot 2015-05-15 at 11.36.25 AM“Tell me something about Ugandan culture,” prompts Vice correspondent Isobel Yeung to a group of locals on a recent trip to investigate violence against gays in the country.

“The first thing we hate is homosexuality,” one man begins. “We hate that one completely. If we find a woman with a woman, we pull out one and we do it to her…We have sex with her…Serious rape.”

“So what would you do if you saw a gay man?” asks Yeung.

The man gets a disturbing smile on his face as he yells, “Kill! You kill that one! Woman and woman we rape, but man and man we kill.”

This Friday, HBO’s Vice tells this and other stories surrounding the current state of homosexuality in Uganda. It’s an ugly reality, but one that the world needs to know about.

Below, find two clips from the show. The first contains the interview posted above, and in the second one, Yeung interviews a gay woman who was raped:

Vice airs Fridays at 11pm on HBO.
