Persecution and response

Photo essay: Uganda presses on with its anti-homosexuality bill while the LGBT community fights back

by Tadej Znidarcic + BIO

Demonstrators support the anti-homosexuality bill outside the Ugandan parliament, November 2012.

Aeon commissioned photographer Tadej Znidarcic to illustrate Graeme Wood’s Outrageous Freedom essay on Ugandan gay rights. Znidarcic had unprecendented access to both sides of the conflict, photographing a gathering of the religious and political firebrands who continue to press for the anti-homosexuality bill to be passed in parliament, as well as the gay activists who campaign for freedom from persecution.
