On air: Being gay in Uganda

Chloe Tilley Chloe Tilley | 13:55 UK time, Friday, 22 October 2010

 

It's a recently started newspaper, run by students and with a readership of a couple of thousand. Yet there's been global uproar after Rolling Stone newspaper in Uganda called for all gay people to be hanged and has now published the names, addresses and photos of what it calls Uganda's 100 top homosexuals.

At least four people on the list have already been attacked and gay rights activists say many more are in hiding. The paper claims that some of this group are actively recruiting children in school and that was why it felt compelled to publish.

Well the editor Giles Muhame is the managing editor of the newspaper and has agreed to come onto WHYS to speak to gay ugandans and take your questions. Post them here.
