The Struggle for LGBT Rights in Uganda with Rev. Mark Kiyimba
Monday, July 18 at 6:30pm
Iowa City Public Library, Iowa City
Rev. Mark Kiyimba is the founding minister of the Unitarian-Universalist Church in Kampala, Uganda. He has received international attention for his courageous stand against the anti-homosexuality bill that is now before the Ugandan parliament. According to the bill, those perceived as homosexual could be punished by life imprisonment or, in some cases, even death. The Unitarian-Universalist Church of Kampala held conferences in 2009 and 2010 to protest the bill. More than 200 persons attended these conferences, including gay and lesbian Ugandans and their allies, risking possible arrest. The Kampala Unitarian-Universalist Church is one of the few congregations in Uganda that welcomes gay, lesbian, and bisexual and transgender people. The lecture will be followed by discussion.
