Human rights defender and leading Ugandan LGBTIQ advocate, Pepe Julian Onziema, travelled to Canada with generously donated Aeroplan points. Pepe, who is a director at Sexual Minorities Uganda, an SLF partner organization, helped raise awareness about the power of community in the struggle for LGBTIQ human rights, including access to stigma-free health services, HIV prevention and testing. Hear his interview with host, Brent Bambury, here: http://bit.ly/PepeJulianOnziema-SLF-LGBTQAfricaInitiative. "We’re calling on all people who care about human rights and social justice,” Pepe said. “We’re standing up to discrimination.” SMUG is one of 16 organizations run by and for LGBTIQ communities that partner with the SLF.
