I know there is a separate topic already on this, but has anyone seen any of the clips from this, or read through any of the stories??
Would it affect your life, and your attititudes towards people in the UK?? Or would you think it's all too far away to really concern you? (this seems to be the attitude of a number of people on twitter). Some people I have spoken to this morning actually share the views of many of the anti-gay people in Uganda. It's only an 8 hour flight away from the UK, yet it's just shocking.
The absolute ignorance in this country is ASTOUNDING, including "cleansing" someone of being gay with chickens and water..... if it wasn't so bloody ridiculous, it would be laughable.
And this story - THIS: Stosh: When she was a teenager she was raped by a man to try and "cure" her of her lesbianism and as a result was infected with HIV. THIS story is the one that infuriates me the most.
If you haven't had the chance, please view the clips now by clicking on the link below. Scott presents well, although I still don't feel he was confrontational enough.
The actual doc will be, as previously mentioned, Monday at 9:30 pm, BBC 3
A bit about it on the homepage here - http://www.unofficialmills.co.uk/com...ment-in-Uganda
