Preview Screening: Call Me Kuchu + Q&A

Call Me Kuchu documents the courageous efforts of Uganda’s first openly gay man, David Kato and his team to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. The Screening will be followed by a Q&A with the directors.


American evangelicals have dubbed Uganda, a country with a 40 percent Roman Catholic population, ground zero in their war on the homosexual agenda. Inspired by the American evangelicals a new anti-homosexuality bill proposing death for HIV-positive gay men and prison for anyone who fails to turn in a known homosexual awaits debate in the Uganan Parliament.

Call Me Kuchu documents the courageous efforts of Uganda’s first openly gay man, David Kato and his team to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Kato fights to repeal Uganda’s homophobic laws and liberate his fellow lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender men and women, also known as kuchu's. One year into filming and just three weeks after a landmark legal victory, on January 26, 2011, the unthinkable happens: Kato is brutally murdered in his home.

With unprecedented access, Call Me Kuchu depicts the last year in the life of this courageous, quick-witted and steadfast man. The film examines the astounding courage and determination required to battle an oppressive government, a vicious media and a powerful church in the fight for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights.
