God Loves Uganda

Please join the WGSS Program for a Free Film Screening and discussion with Ugandan activists after film.The film argues that US evangelical Christian groups, having lost the 'culture wars' in the US, have decided to re-stage them in Africa and particularly in the country of Uganda. They are putting a good deal of energy there into promoting abstinence-based education and particularly homophobia, including playing a role in the infamous "Kill the Gays" Bill currently under discussion in the Ugandan Parliament.  There are a lot of important voices in the movie,  and we will follow it with a panel discussion with 3 extraordinary Ugandan activists working on HIV, LGBT and transgender rights.
