Today's Show: A Uganda Activist Speaks Out

3:30pm EST - Julius Kaggwa, a leader of the Civil Society Coalition on Human Rights and Constitutional Law in Uganda who focuses on the rights of sexual minorities, testified at hearing of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission of the U.S. Congress last week against the proposed Uganda "Anti-Homosexuality Bill." He joins us this afternoon in studio to talk about the bill, knowns as the "Kill the Gays Bill" because of the possibility that punishment will include execution, and what life is like for LGBT people, and all people who would be affected by this law in Uganda. "The bill does not only affect homosexual Ugandans, it affects all Ugandans," he says.
