Ugandan vlogger’s homophobic rant puts migrant workers at risk.


A self-righteous Ugandan national living in the Middle East has released an excruciatingly homophobic online rant blasting Ugandans and other Africans for engaging in adult consensual same-sex intimacy in Arab countries where they are earning money doing odd jobs. Those workers, called “kadama” in the Lugandan language of Uganda, are put in danger when they are outed in majority-Muslim countries where same-sex activity can be punishable by the death penalty and where they often are subjected to homophobic violence and state surveillance. In her video, Ms. Shiearah Arditah criticizes Ugandans, Kenyans, Tanzanians and Nigerians. This outing of kadama comes at a time when the Kuwait government has summoned the top official of the U.S. Embassy to protest the display of the gay pride flag and tweets in support of LGBTQ rights. In the video, recorded in her native Luganda language and posted June 2, 2022, Arditah says she is alarmed and disgusted by an increase in the number of Black Ugandan and other African women indulging in same-sex intimacy.
