“HERE WE ARE, WE ARE GAY, WE ARE UGANDAN" by tadej žnidarčič
on february 24, 2014, a new anti homosexuality law in uganda took effect, imposing sentences of up to life imprisonment for engaging in homosexual relationships (the death penalty was initially proposed, but withdrawn due to international outcry). the bill also makes it a crime for anyone - parent, friend, priest, doctor - not to report homosexual activity to the authorities.
newspapers already out people they suspect, and this is believed to have led to the 2011 murder of david kato, a prominent ugandan gay rights campaigner. that newspaper article included a list of 100 people and addresses, with the headline “hang them.” in uganda, publicly identifying as gay or being identified as such can result in the loss of a job, arrest, harassment, blackmail, beatings and death.
in 2010, tadej žnidarčič began a series of portraits and interviews with ugandan lgbti activists with the aim to give voice, if not face, to the members of the gay community (read their individual stories here). due to the precarious situation, they did not want to be identified and they were photographed from behind.
but when žnidarčič, a physicist turned photojournalist who has been living in uganda for four years, revisited them in 2013, they had become more empowered, assertive and confident, and were now willing to face the world. he paired the images to emphasize their transformation. as one of the photographed said, “here we are. we are gay. we are uganadan.”

Louisiana state laws and practices that prohibit access to sterile syringes and criminalize sex work contribute to an uncontrolled HIV epidemic and an extremely high AIDS death rate. The AIDS death rate in Louisiana is more than double the US average. New Orleans police regularly interfere with sex workers who carry condoms, putting them and their clients at risk of HIV.
“The HIV epidemic in New Orleans is one of the worst in the US, and proven strategies for addressing it are being ignored,” said Megan McLemore, senior health researcher at Human Rights Watch and the report’s author. “People who use drugs can’t get clean needles, and police are confiscating condoms from sex workers and those suspected of sex work, such as transgender women.”

Group was traveling to a wedding in central Yemen when it was allegedly mistaken for al-Qaeda fighters and hit by a drone in Yemen.
Keep in mind, there was no terrorist or suspect terrorist amongst the group, supposedly they “missed” their target.
This is wrong
