Malika Zouhali-Worrall, director of “Call me Kuchu” tells Thomson Reuters Foundation about the situation LGBTI activism in Uganda and the making of the documentary.

“Call Me Kuchu” is a documentary about the combativeness and positiveness of the lGBTI community in uganda, and the progress they’re making in a country where being gay is illegal and an anti-homosexuality bill that could sentence hundreds to death is sitting in parliament for the second time, awaiting approval.

Directors Malika Zouhali-Worrall and Katherine Fairfax Wright followed David Kato - who lost his life to the cause- and a group of Ugandan LGBTI activists from the chaotic streets of Kampala to court rooms and drag queen parties, to let the people on the frontline of this struggle speak.
