The coolest place on the internet, according to this tagline.

David Kato was the first one who taught me to protect my human right… If I live or die, I am gay, and if I am buried, bury me gay.
Transgender Ugandan man George Oundo • Privately recanting his claims during a demonstration, just an hour earlier, that gay men recruited him into homosexuality at age twelve. He appeared in service of the Reverend Martin Ssempa, a virulently anti-gay crusader who goes around whipping up the Ugandan citizenry into a homophobic fervor. His preachings both fostered the current political environment that saw the brutal murder of David Kato, one of Uganda’s few openly homosexual advocates, come and go with little fanfare; he also directly influenced MP David Bahati’s legislation prescribing the death penalty for “serial homosexuality.” Oundo recanted in privacy after the event, praising David Kato and explaining that he’d been offered $42 dollars for the appearance. “I’ve always been gay, I didn’t choose it.” source (viafollow)
