In an emotional and powerful interview, Paul Semugoma from the Global Forum on MSM and HIV talks about stigma and discrimination in his home country of Uganda. He shared his fear about coming out and living as a gay man in Uganda. Semugoma explains how societal homophobia and anti-gay positions taken by the country's leadership are prohibiting proven science from being implemented and blocking prevention efforts for men who have sex with men. He notes the "huge structural issues" to ending AIDS in his country, including the criminalization of sex workers and drug users. Despite all this, he concludes that he is hopeful about the future.
