Ugandan activists launch campaign against religion-fueled homophobia.


Human rights activists in Uganda have launched a new campaign to end religious inspired homophobia, with a call to Abrahamic religions to embrace love and diversity. The ongoing campaign can be found using the hashtag #SayNoToReligiousHomophobia on social media. “We’re all God’s children,” says Vincent Kyabayinze, executive director of East African Visual Artists (EAVA), explaining the purpose of the “Say No to Religious Homophobia” campaign. “The LGBT community is our primary focus.” The 50-plus activists and leaders who signed the pledge included church leaders, pastors, bishops, reverends and lay people. New LGBT-inclusive and affirming religious leaders also signed the pledge. The campaign will be ongoing, with a goal to enhance inclusion and acceptance of LGBT people in communities.
