    Maggie Thatcher.

  3. Noise and strange people at a gay bar?

    Sounds like harmless drinks, laughter and friendship.

    The dangerous noise and strange people are at Ssempa’s church service.

    Isn’t this a case for the Kaleidoscope Trust?

  4. 3 days ago I saw one of the most shocking video’s I have ever seen of a gay man in uganda being brutally lynched, bashed and then set on fire in the cities centre……..as much as I believe in standing your ground and fighting the situation in Uganda is hopeless!

    Ssempa and his evil hate speech has prevailed and there is now barbaric murdering of gay people and suspected gay people on the streets……..for the love of god please don’t set up another gay bar (even an underground one) and place everyone in the same room to be butchered- that will be an absolute catastrophe!!!

    A recent BBC documentary about gays in Uganda featured a gay friendly club, T-Cozy in Kampala. How long before that gets raided by the police? People who visit such places in countries like Uganda must have nerves of steel. The same goes for the patrons of the Café on Jam-e-Jam Square in Tehran, Iran.

      @GDMR…
      ….Why don’t you publish a map and make it even easier for the authorities to find such places. With friends like you who needs enemies. FFS think before you publish names and such about GLB places in these barbaric stone age countries!!!

    Yet more shame from such a homophobic country who believe people they hate just because of the way they were born should have no life.

  7. Ms Kasha is a very brave woman.

    Hopefully her international reputation will give her some protection. But in a country where someone as high-profile as David Kato could be murdered, Jacqueline Kasha is certainly not safe.

      Make sure to keep her details from Gay Daily Mail Reader cause he will publish them for all the world and its despots to see…..

    All non humanitarian aid should be withdrawn, and AIDS support should be on condition Ssempa gets no where near the funding, and that gay people receive the support too.

    She rocks, she is my hero of the week. If only some of the people who spent their time leaving 100+ comments on pink news actually did something useful like her.

    1. Like you, you mean?

  10. In today’s news, the UK is cutting aid to African nations who promote anti-gay attitudes and policies:
