Scott Mills in Nakawa Market, Kampala, Uganda.
Many think Stosh is a boy but she's a lesbian. She was recently "outed" in a national newspaper and as a result was stoned by her neighbours. She fled her home in terror and is now in hiding. This is just the latest in a long line of incidents that have befallen Stosh because of her sexuality. 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.
Frank is one of the group of gay boys Scott meets while in Uganda. Frank is HIV positive and was kicked out of his home by his family when they found out he was gay. He's very angry about his treatment as a gay man in Uganda and with the increasing levels of homophobic violence is worried about the future.
Pastor Solomon Male
Pastor Male is part of the self styled National Coalition against Homosexuality and Sexual Abuse in Uganda and claims he was the first person in the country to come out openly against gays. Male believes that no one is born gay and that through counselling they can be cured of this "affliction", which leads to a very lively exchange with Scott.
27-year-old gay activist and director of Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG), a leading Ugandan pressure group. He's constantly being harassed in the street and vilified in the Ugandan press and is worried that homophobia and homophobic attacks on are on the rise…but this has not stopped him fighting for the rights of the gay community.
Popular British Radio 1 DJ and television presenter. Scott came out as gay to the press in 2001 without any drama. In the film he journeys to Uganda and finds out what it's like to be harassed, beaten and to live in fear of your life…just because of your sexuality. He also confronts and challenges an assortment of bigots on their homophonic attitudes and puts himself through a bizarre traditional ritual involving animals and fire to try and make him straight.
