The LGBT community has been harassed for years in Uganda. This is why the first Gay Pride organized on August 4th in Entebbe was praised worldwide.
LGBT Pride was a series of events held at Entebbe, including a party, a beach parade and a film festival. Jamaican LGBT activist Maurice Tomlinson was honored as the grand marshal of the event. In spite of widespread homophobia on the part Ugandan politicians and the public, the event was reportedly well attended. Ugandan police raided the event and detained LGBT activists who were later released.
