LGBT-related programming is picking up at the Center for Civil and Human Rights, as it hosts an Oct. 3 panel on “LGBT Rights in the USA and Across the Globe.”
Remarks will be made at this Friday’s event by Atlanta sister city Mayor Hon. Dr. Ulrigh Maly of Nuremberg, Germany, then lesbian former Atlanta City Councilwoman Cathy Woolard will moderate a panel that includes:
- Kasha Nabagesera, LGBT activist and recipient of the International Human Rights Award
- Michael Adee, Ph. D., Global Faith & Justice Project, Horizons Foundation
- Tanya Washington, Associate Professor of Law, Georgia State University College of Law
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.
