Five years ago in January, the High Court of Uganda made a landmark decision. It declared that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex Ugandans have the same right to privacy as anyone else, and that newspapers cannot urge people to kill us. Like our religious and political leaders, journalists are keepers of the public trust. But in Uganda, they have too often broken this trust to publish dangerous and unfounded rumors about LGBTI people.
