I am an activist who is full of courage but always fearful;.. I am a reader who reads and dreams at the same time;.. I am an educator who is constantly learning;.. I am real and fake and often cannot tell the difference at a given moment;.. I love people but feel safer on my own;.. I am always on the run but cannot hide;.. my home is where my heart is which may or may not be where my home is;.. I love to take photos but after 20 years still cannot get it right but just occasionally very occasionally I get it right and that makes all the failures worthwhile;.. I am full of confidence and drowning in self-doubt;.. each day without fail I wake up with anxiety but I always manage to make it through the day;.. I am visible and therefore vulnerable to shame;.. I am invisible and therefore vulnerable to being silenced;.. I am connected but full of disconnections to people, to situations, to experiences.. I have a longing yet my belly is full.. I am imperfect but yearn to be perfect.. I have passed through many places, created many spaces, loved many people, made many wrongs but in all my life I do not know what I have done..

  • Title: Uganda: Global Day of Action Against the AHB
    Descriptive info: 2014.. February.. UGANDA.. 31st JANUARY 2014.. Background.. On 20th December 2013, Lesbian and Gay Bisexual Transgender Community in Uganda woke up to the grim news that the Anti Homosexuality bill, which had been shelved at the end of 2012 had been passed by Parliament.. The bill was passed without Quorum and without Prior mandatory inclusion on the Parliament Order Paper.. The bill, if passed into law will be a disaster to the Human Rights of LGBT people, a disaster to public health and the fight against HIV/AIDS.. Recent reports in the Uganda and International Media have indicated that the President will not sign the bill and hence it is generally believed that the bill is no longer a threat.. We would like to reiterate that this bill is still a huge threat and a treasure to the majority of Ugandans and since our leaders are populists’ they will likely bend to the pressure of the ‘Voters’ and with the 2016 elections looming in the horizon, politicians will no doubt do anything to capitalize on opportunities that protect their political interests.. The President of Uganda is no exception.. It is also worth to note that the power of ascension process of a bill that is passed by parliament doesn’t lay primarily with the President of Uganda; it is constitutionally provided that within 30days of the bill being sent to the President for ascension, the president Must either sign the bill to become law.. The president may reject to give assent,.. Constitution provides that the president shall within 30 days after a bill is presented to him/her either:-.. Assent to the bill.. Return the  ...   Issue statements condemning the passage of the Bill and call on the President NOT to sign it into law, It is also important to continue to continue to remind Ugandans and our leaders to uphold Human Rights for all people.. 3.. Wear a t-shirt, a bracelet, Carry a poster with a message of solidarity for the LGBT community in Uganda.. 4.. Deliver Petitions to your embassies condemning this bill and urging the president to.. 5.. Hold prayer vigils to show what a ‘dark day’ it is for Human Rights and to call upon ‘Devine Intervention’.. 6.. Write to your political leader, your religious, your opinion leader to speak.. 7.. Make sure you have called that media house you work with; we need Uganda, Africa and the whole world to know that we are visible, and to know that Human Rights are Universal.. 8.. Use social media.. 9.. 5th February :.. Twitter blast- The idea is to send as many tweets on that day to the prime minister, the president’s office, parliament..
