Supporters have donated more than $5,000 to help Ugandan LGBTQ+ rights activist Steven Kabuye, who was hospitalized in critical condition after he was repeatedly stabbed by anti-gay attackers on Jan. 3. Kabuye wrote: Greetings dear comrades and fellow activists in the struggle for ensuring equity across human rights regardless of anyone’s gender or sexual orientation…Human rights are not a war zone, and therefore people who champion them should not continue losing their lives simply because of a fundamental human responsibility! I almost lost my life for the cause of humanity and ensuring that all Ugandan LGBT are freed from the most deadly and dangerous anti-homosexuality law in Uganda, #AHA.
