A sobering peek into one of the most homophobic places on Earth

Synopsis

Particularly inspiring in light of changes in the law that happened after this film was made, this is a documentary about SMUG (Sexual Minorities Uganda), a group of radical LGBT activists who risk their lives in order to push for queer rights. Piehl follows this brave group as they try to reason with medical academics and struggle to undo the damage done by colonial laws and years of Missionary intervention in Uganda.
