Surprising…

Ugandan gay activist Frank Mugisha sent us an email to inform us that police arrested two trans women at a bar back in May. The ladies, cops said, were causing a “public nuisance,” which sounds like fancy code for being queer. Considering the lack of evidence – and despite the nation’s overarching anti-gay and trans attitudes – a judge did the right thing and dismissed the case late last month, citing lack of evidence. While that’s good news, Uganda’s laws still skew against the so-called “sexual deviants.”
