Uganda’s queer politics garnered some protest this week.
The government demonstrated sheer idiocy this week after it admitted the nation’s gays are hit – and help spread – HIV/AIDS, but then went on to say health officials won’t help treat or educate them. Why? Because the Ugandan government believes gays have no place within their borders.
Well, hoping to raise awareness, three gay activists stormed an AIDS conference in Kampala today – and ended up behind bars for the trouble. Hurray for public displays of democratic repression!
