A talk with Ugandan LBQ+ activists
The relationship between religion and sexuality has been complicated throughout history. To date, religion is the basis on which many African countries and those within their borders have an anti-sexuality stance. Sexuality, more so sex, is taboo, one that shouldn’t be discussed. This lack of information for individuals and communally as a society means there are many misconceptions fuelled by religious morality. The fact that religion, in particular christian ethics, was brought through colonisation to negate African practices is as foreign to African christians as wearing cow hides.
