Gay Ugandans Endorse June 21
SF Global LGBT Pride Video Project

I received an email early this morning from Julian Pepe Onziema, a leader with the Sexual Minorities Uganda group. He informed me that they have endorsed the San Francisco Global LGBT Pride Video project, which will happen on Thursday, June 21 at 4 p.m. at Harvey Milk Plaza.

More info about the project is here and to donate money to help Gays Without Border create the video, click here.

We welcome more groups endorsing the video project, and sending us their logos and short statements of support. We also plan to print the logos of many foreign LGBT groups as colorful posters, and will use the logos from their web sites. 

Thank you, brave LGBTI people of Uganda for your incredibly courage and advocacy fighting for dignity and respect!

Here's the text of the message that will be read in San Francisco's Milk Plaza on June 21:

Sexual Minorities Uganda [SMUG]: We've existed since 2004, advocating for the liberation of sexual and gender minorities by fighting discriminatory laws like the pending Anti Homosexuality Bill - 2009. SMUG stands in solidarity with all LGBTI persons and groups in San Francisco and globally. Loud Love and Pride from Kampala, Uganda.
