On Thursday August 29, 2013, Freedom House and KICK, The Agency for LGBT African-Americans, will host a fundraiser at The Charles H. Wright Museum of African-American History highlighting the plight of LGBT individuals around the world. Frank Mugisha, Ugandan LGBT rights activist, executive director of Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG), and recipient of the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award (2011), will be our honored guest. The event will begin with a screening of “Call Me Kuchu”, a film that profiles four openly LGBT individuals in Uganda – among them, the late David Kato, Uganda’s first openly gay man. Immediately after the film, there will be a panel discussion featuring Frank Mugisha, who was a colleague and close friend of Kato. The panel will also include representatives from a range of local LGBT rights supporters. We believe a conversation is necessary to secure and uphold the basic human rights of all people. The plight of the LBGT struggle for equality throughout the world can no longer be ignored.
