“And That’s How I Survived Being Killed”

Today was the publication of, “And That’s How I Survived Being Killed”: Testimonies of Human Rights Abuses From Uganda’s Sexual and Gender Minorities by Sexual Minorities Uganda. Finally seeing it in print was such an amazing experience.

The report includes testimonies from interviews of selected cases from the 264  documented cases of human rights abuses toward sexual and gender minorities in Uganda. It was not an easy process. The research project took over two years and involved a team of over 10 researchers. I was lucky enough to join the team in the second year of the research process which prioritized analysis of the cases and authoring of the report.

Please take a moment to view the whole report. Giving an audience to the stories of human rights abuse that are included in this report brings us one step closer to creating a liberated lgbt population in Uganda — and the world.
