    A fitting award for someone doing such exceptional work even though she has to live in such harsh conditions.
    To tirelessly fight for the Rights of the LGBT community in Uganda does put in prospective much easier we have it here in the Western world compared to the horrific regimes and societies the likes of Ms. Nabagesera has to stand up to for true equality.
    Without people like Ms. Nabagesera the world would be a far worse place it is today and that doesn’t bare thinking about.

  2. A very brave woman. I admire her strength and her determination so much. To stand up and be counted in such a country is very, very courageous. She thoroughly deserves this award.

    1. Seconded, Iris.

  3. An incredibly brave women.
    In the current climate of insane, and deadly homophobic hatred in Uganda, I suspect most people would not want to adopt such position of visability.Thank goodness, some one is brave enough to challange this invidous regime.

  4. Well thats cheered me up nice one

    I seriously doubt too many people would have the courage this woman has, especially in a country as backward as Uganda. She is an international role model and symbol of hope.

  6. and in this country idea of bravery is….. taking part in east london pride

    Amazing woman, people like her lay the foundations of the future. It’s the ones that dont accept the fate forced upon them that lead the way for a better tommorow.

  8. I wish I had an ounce of the ton of courage she has.

    What a strong, brave woman. Highly deserved.

    There’s a lot more bravery in what she is doing than parading down Piccadilly in silver shorts on roller skates.

  11. Indeed a beautiful and brave woman. She must have exceptional psychological fortitude to withstand this.
