I think that much of the stigma is not traditional but was adopted during the era of colonization and later attitudes reinforced by missionaries. Maybe things will change when Africans begin to control their own destinies.

When I came out I was in the British Army and back then it was illegal. It was probably the hardest thing I have ever done - the fear of rejection, the loss of income and a real fear of isolation. To have done what you have done, your career, the work you have been doing and then to out on stage with very real consequences is inspiring. Because of that maybe one day you'll get to go back to Uganda without the threat of prison. Good luck.

"None of us can move forward if half of us are held back." this quotation was above the stage at the Womens Concert for Change which took place in London, England & was broadcast in the U.S. on Sunday,June 2, 2013. Coming out is not easy, but, each time someone does, the shackled which hold many of us back are broken.
