Coquette, the Ugandan government is officially going to pass the “Kill The Gays” bill — and I don’t know why, but I’m completely torn up and in tears about it. How can I even accept, as a gay man, that this shit goes on in the world?
Acknowledge it, but don’t accept it. Also, understand this shit for what it is. The Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality Bill is the life’s work of one man, David Bahati. Surprise, surprise. He’s a Christian evangelical nut bag. As per usual, organized religion is at the root of the problem.
Don’t worry, though. This shit won’t stand. Fearmongering fucks like Bahati are always on the wrong side of history. Ignorance never wins, progress is always slow, and sometimes a step backward is necessary to take a big leap forward.
