Uganda’s LGBTQI community faces constant threat and violence, along with legal and societal discrimination. 

We talk with photojournalist Jiro Ose who is based in Kampala, Uganda. He’s in Chicago to highlight his experiences documenting the lives of LGBTQI in Uganda. Artworks Projects for Human Rights, in partnership with Heartland Alliance is presenting an exhibit of Ose’s work called “NOT/STILL: The Fight For Human Rights By Uganda’s LGBTQI Community.” It runs through May, 28th 2016.
