Anyone interested in global development needs to be attending AMREF’s Coffeehouse Speaker Series. Every event features a new topic and expert panel, and this month, they will screen Call me Kuchu, a moving documentary about David Kato, Uganda’s first openly gay male.

This special one-night-only screening will also feature a panel discussion with Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine, an American-Ugandan actor currently starring in Tremé, who provided some footage for Call Me Kuchu and is staging a one-man play about homosexuality in Uganda. He will be joined by Anne-Marie Kamanye, the Executive Director of AMREF Canada, and Dr. André Ndikuyeze, who recently wrote a statement calling for equal healthcare treatment for men who have sex with men in Africa.

This is a great opportunity to see a film that illuminates one of the most dangerous human rights struggles of our time. Activists in Uganda face death to stand up for what they believe in, and Call Me Kuchu is a unique look into that fight. The discussion afterwards is sure to offer even more insight.

Tickets are limited, get yours here.
