A Ugandan LGBT activist said on Friday they planned to return to their home country next week despite fears of reprisal after the approval of a new anti-gay law. DeLovie Kwagala, who is non-binary and prefers the pronoun ‘they’, has been living in South Africa since 2021. But next week the activist and photographer also known as Papa De, said they will have to travel back to Uganda, where same-sex relations are illegal, as their visa is expiring and cannot be renewed from within the country. “I’m going home in just a couple days,” Kwagala told AFP in an interview on Friday, saying the prospect made them jittery.
