Gay Ugandan on her struggle against state prejudice


A controversial anti-homosexuality bill is being put through parliament in Uganda.

Homosexual acts are already illegal but the bill proposes the death penalty for certain homosexual acts.

One of the few openly gay Ugandans, Julian Pepe, spoke to the BBC about the struggles in her life.

She says her treatment by the police has left her traumatised and tells how stones have been thrown at her home.
