IPS Profiles Advocacy Group for Sexual Minorities With HIV in Uganda

December 18, 2013

Inter Press Service profiles the "Come Out Post-Test Club," which was established earlier this year as "a safe space and advocacy group for trans women sex workers living with HIV" in Kampala, Uganda. "The club's executive secretary, Bad Black, says it is helping to fill a desperately needed gap in support services," IPS writes, adding, "According to Black, many trans women have died in Uganda because of discrimination in the public health service." The news service also quotes Beyonce Karungi Tushabe, the executive director of Transgender Equality Uganda, an NGO working for the rights of transgender people; Flavia Kyomukama, a member of the Global Coalition of Women Against AIDS; and Moses Kimbugwe, an activist with Spectrum, an NGO providing HIV/AIDS education and prevention for men who have sex with men (MSM) in and around Kampala, about challenges faced by sexual minorities seeking HIV/AIDS treatment in the country (Michael, 12/16).
