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 (via • follow)

Here’s what this Anglican pastor Thomas Musoke had to say: “The world has gone crazy. People are turning away from the scriptures. They should turn back, they should abandon what they are doing. You cannot start admiring a fellow man.” Hey, Mr. Musoke, this is a GAY MAN WHO WAS KILLED BECAUSE OF ANTI-GAY BIGOTRY. AND YOU HAVE THIS TO SAY AT HIS FUNERAL?!?!? This world is a disgrace sometimes, and we’re not sure we even want to be on the same planet as people such as these. David Kato was the gay activist beaten to death Wednesday, which we noted in an article that shocked many on Tumblr. source

A sad day for human rights: Ugandan gay rights activist David Kato was found beaten to death in his home yesterday. His picture recently appeared on a Ugandan magazine next to the words “hang them,” a byproduct of a violent, anti-gay political climate fostered by David Bahati’s disgusting homosexuality legislation, which prescribes the death penalty for “serial offenders.” Bahati is a member of the potent U.S. Evangelical group “The Family,” home to many American politicos, so don’t expect this story to go away too easily. We hope like hell it won’t. source
