On the 1st of March we had Cape Town pride. With all the gay rights violations happening around the world it seemed very hard to pick a theme for this years pride. To me Uganda was the biggest topic for gay rights this year. Yes Russia had made a very unfair anti-propaganda law that would make being an out gay illegal, telling gays that they better not show anybody how gay they are. Russia used a very sneaky law to do almost the same as Uganda, except Uganda made it illegal to be gay, not only can you not be out, you can not be gay in anyway or know any gay people. You will go to jail for being who you are, and if you are a known gay in prison I do not see you coming out of prison alive.
So I created my Uganda Gay Pride Flag to create awareness and to have a resource for other LGBT pride parades.
Please use the Uganda Heart or Normal Gay Uganda Pride flag at your next pride or gay rights rally.
Hundreds of people loved my shirt design that me and my boyfriend was wearing. Many other people wore UGANDA shirts and South Africa’s second largest political party the Democratic Alliance (DA) had all their LGBT members wear UGANDA T-Shirts (PICTURE BELOW). My mother and father was also at pride wearing P-FLAG shirts. ( Parents, Friends and Family of Lesbians and Gays.) My dad and mom have started a Somerset West / Strand PFLAG group on Facebook, please follow them by clicking HERE. I am really lucky to have parents that support me and love me. Me and my sister are LGBT and they give us all the support and love we need to thrive. We all had a great out and pride parade, so enjoy our pictures and remember to keep the message strong, GAY RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS!
