Abstract

Despite major changes over the past two decades, sex between men remains misunderstood, feared, and discriminated against in most parts of the world. In January, 2011, a prominent Ugandan gay activist, David Kato, was murdered shortly after winning a lawsuit against a local magazine, which had published his name and photograph identifying him as gay and called for his execution.
