Americans United for Separation of Church and State Orange County Chapter
AU-OC Presents: Call Me Kuchu
Part of Our On-Going “Flicks for Thought” Series
In Uganda, a bill threatens to make homosexuality punishable by death. David Kato, Uganda’s first openly gay man, and retired Anglican Bishop Christopher Senyonjo work against the clock to defeat state-sanctioned homophobia while combatting vicious persecution in their daily lives. But no one is prepared for the brutal murder that shakes their movement to its core and sends shock waves around the world.
Call Me Kuchu is a 2012 American documentary film directed by Malika Zouhali-Worrall and Katherine Fairfax Wright. The film explores the struggles of the LGBT community in Uganda, focusing in part on the 2011 murder of LGBT activist David Kato.
The film received the 2014 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Documentary and was the recipient of the Teddy Award for best LGBTQ documentary.
Please join us for this interesting film and a discussion following the film.
