An honest documentary about LGBT community in Uganda, where homosexuality, like almost everywhere in the world, is perceived as a pestilence. 95% of the population are allegedly against them, politicians and religious establishments are hating them, the press are there to expose their identities.
Some of them are fighting back. Stand for their literally non-existent rights. But is it really worth the fuss? Wouldn’t it be much safer and easier to just go back to square one, being ‘closeted gays’?
My Rating: 8/10
