“This is How the Heart Beats – LGBTQ Refugees in East Africa”
Zoom Panel Discussion
Sunday, June 20, 1PM (EST)

Same-sex relations are illegal in thirty-eight African countries, often under colonial-era laws. One of the most dangerous countries has been Uganda, where homophobic lawmakers twice tried to pass Anti-Homosexuality Bills (commonly known as “Kill the Gays” bills) that sought to broaden the criminalization of same-sex relations, making it punishable by life imprisonment and, in some instances, death.
Join East African LGBTQ activists, refugees and allies behind “This Is How the Heart Beats: LGBTQ East Africa” (The New Press) — a collection of portraits of East Africans by photographer Jake Naughton who were forced to flee unimaginable abuse by their governments, neighbors and even their families — to discuss life for LGBTQ people in East Africa. Tickets for this event will be PWYC with a suggested donation of $10, and will raise money for ERWEO, an organization helping LGBTQ people in Uganda.
