A Ugandan man involved in gay rights has been found murdered. We can only hope his killers are brought to justice. David Kato was an activist with Sexual Minorities Uganda and was ‘outed’ by the newspapers there last year. It is a stark reminder that being gay is still neither safe nor accepted in some parts of the world and we must fight to change that. IN our own small way, if what we do, if what we write allows people to accept LGBT issues as mainstream, then hopefully, the prejudice will diminish and stop altogether. Maybe not in my lifetime, but maybe I can have some small part in working towards that ultimate goal. My sympathies are with his family and to his killers I would say, you will not win.
