As part of its annual 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign, the Center for Women's Global Leadership and various university partners present a film screening and panel discussion about the challenges facing the LGBT community in Uganda. The documentary Call Me Kuchu tells the story of David Kato, Uganda's first openly gay man, and retired Anglican Bishop Christopher Senyonjo as they work against the clock to defeat the government bill that threatens to make homosexuality punishable by death. Following the screening, Frank Mugisha (Executive Director of Sexual Minorities Uganda) and Pamela Spees (Senior Staff Attorney at the Center for Constitutional Rights) will discuss the current climate for the LGBT community in Uganda. Rasha Moumneh from CWGL will moderate the discussion.

Location College Avenue Student Center (126 College Avenue New Brunswick, NJ)
