Isaac Mugisha, co-ordinator of Pride Uganda, is determined and optimistic that Ugandan LGBTIs will hold a Pride event in Kampala later this year, without it being shut down by the authorities. If the event does go ahead, it will be the first Pride held successfully in the East African country since 2015. In 2016, as reported by The Daily Beast, Uganda Pride events were the subject of a brutal crackdown by police. Frank Mugisha, executive director of Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG), his colleagues, and others were arrested and detained. In the chaos, one gay man fell four stories and suffered horrendous injuries.
