How we tie loose ends is an important skill in activism

It is interesting how Uganda and the minority groups have organized to bring to the fore issues such as 'homosexuality.' It helps to note that indeed there are struggles, denials and opportunism. There is a deliberate effort to curtail infrastructures of safety and life preserving practices. There are also effort towards redress. The question who is 'right' and who is 'wrong' has tended to hide other issues: privacy, dignity, education, awareness, leadership, readership and establishment of tolerance infrastructures. Many have taken sides. Some are bitter to the point of belligerence. Sexuality indeed touches raw nerves. But humanity is known to get over what pulls it down. The next bench-marks are slated to have the politics and citizenship around sexuality, orientation, gender, identity and health.
