Published: December 5, 2012

Kasha Jacqueline Nabagesera, a lesbian Ugandan and founder of the country’s LGBT advocacy group Freedom and Roam Uganda, has filmed a brief video speaking about the implications of the country’s so-called Kill The Gays bill, which could come up for a parliamentary vote in the coming weeks. Truthloader posted the video Monday.

"What the bill is trying to do is just make it illegal for me to be who I am, for simply saying ‘I am a lesbian,’" Nabagesera saysin the video.

The Anti-Homosexuality Bill was passed by a parliamentary committee earlier this month, and now sits at the top of the Parliament’s Orders Papers, listed first under "Business to Follow."
