Love Can Change Anything: Lgbtq Youth Speak Up In Uganda | Short Film Showcase - National Geographic


Uganda is one of at least 34 African countries where homosexual acts are illegal. Members of the LGBTQ community receive no protection from discrimination, violence, arbitrary arrests, and forced evictions. Several people were recently forced into a safe house after a local tabloid printed their photo alongside the headline "500 (UG) Gays Hold Secret Party". Filmmaker Katie Nelson traveled to the capital city of Kampala to interview several of young Ugandans in hiding and asked them, "What does love mean to you?" Editor Joshua Carlon weaves together their responses into a touching piece about the power of love in the face of oppression.Learn more about the film: Nelson: Carlon: Subscribe: Get More Short Film Showcase: Short Film Showcase:A curated collection of the most captivating documentary shorts from filmmakers around the world.
