Nabagasera comes in all the way from Uganda, where she has been one of the leading voices on LGBT rights since the late 1990’s. The country gained infamy last year when a bill was proposed that would have given the death penalty to gay people—gaining the nickname the “Kill The Gays” bill. The death penalty was later dropped from the bill but it was passed by the Ugandan Parliament with a penalty of life in prison.
