Americans owe Ugandan Transwoman Cleopatra Kambugu a shot at life

The friday Uganda’s anti LGBT bill was passed, I lost my job, and some of my friends and relatives. The following month and a half we lived behind locked doors afraid, hungry, deprived of live saving Antiviral drugs.

This trans holocaust is largely the work of ‘American christian’ evangelist Scott Lively, well known for fanning the flame of hatred of LGBT people in Uganda.

Scott Lively is an American.

Lively just lost his last appeal and will will answer in US federal court for crimes against humanity. But regardless of the outcome of that trial the damage to our trans family in Uganda has been done.

I know we can’t be responsible for the damage American Christians do worldwide, but wouldn’t it be a true blessing if we could show Cleopatra that we care? This one person, this time lets open our hearts and give what we are able to.

Rough Studios, a small Swedish production company, has released the first episode of a documentary series about being transgender in Uganda:

We enter the life of Cleopatra Kambugu, a Ugandan transgender girl who was forced to flee to Kenya after being “outed” as homosexual in one of Uganda’s major tabloids. It is a story about love, hate and being transgender, in one of the worlds most homophobic places.

Our goal with this film has always been to make a difference. Whether it is to change peoples hearts, their perception of a transgender person or the prejudice people have towards the LGBT community.
Uganda is a country which for long have been criticized for the discriminations against the LGBTI community.

WE need to show this poor woman some love.
