Summary
In Africa, where two-thirds of countries maintain laws against homosexuality, gay people face increasing persecution. Award-winning African correspondent Sorious Samura investigates the experience of being gay in Africa, and discovers staggering levels of prejudice and hate, driven by governments, religious organizations, and communities. Samura examines the impact extreme homophobia is having on gay people's lives, tracking down the victims of a recent mob attack in Kenya, and speaking to gay men who have spent time in prison for their sexuality. He discovers an AIDS epidemic, where the disease is spreading at an alarming rate among gay men who are not being given vital sex education and health care. In Uganda, Samura finds Muslims and Christians working closely together to target homosexuality and visiting American pastors help spread anti-gay sentiment. The film shines light on an overlooked human rights abuse in Africa that requires the attention of the global community
