Joseph Bokombe, a gay man from Uganda living in San Diego, sits in a U.S. Immigration holding facility, his visa expired, awaiting deportation to a Uganda.
You’ve seen the headlines: “Uganda Debates Anti-Gay bill” – “’Kill the Gays’ Bill Includes Death Penalty Provision” – “Ugandan Gay Activist David Kato Murdered”. Uganda has an increasingly aggressive climate against the LGBT community, fueled by American conservative Christians who permeate the country with hate-filled belief systems.
Joseph fears that a return to Uganda is a sentence to death. He has ample reason to be afraid.
