Cultures at Crossroads

Homosexuality and Human Rights in Uganda

by Alex Nkabahona, Archangel Rukooko Byaruhanga

The book highlights the debates and controversies that have been the subject of the media and other conversation spaces in Uganda in the recent past. Written from a human rights point of view, it exposes the discrimination and abuses suffered by gay persons, comprehensively providing a thoughtful exploration of homosexuality in Uganda, and exploring legislation against homosexuality in Uganda and the impact on the lives and human rights of gay persons.Based on a countrywide survey in Uganda, the work reflects the views of a cross-section of people on homosexuality; it answers various questions and also attempts to unravel myths surrounding homosexuality, calling for reflection on the divisive issue, with the primary view of promoting social justice.
