A swim team organized by a former Utahn now in Uganda, where homosexual activity is illegal and can lead to life imprisonment if found guilty, brought home the world title in the small-team category at the International Gay & Lesbian Aquatics championship in Canada. Nate Freeman’s journey to Uganda began with a 7,500-mile bike tour from north to south Africa to meet and understand the needs of LGBT people on the continent. While in Utah, Freeman worked for two years clerking for judges Tena Campbell and the Robert J. Shelby in Salt Lake City. He then moved to Johannesburg, South Africa to clerk for Justice Edwin Cameron on the Constitutional Court of South Africa, before moving to Kampala, Uganda.
