LGBTI Uganda Fights Back: The Case Against Scott Lively

Print Friendly and PDF

Over the last few years, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) rights movement in Uganda has experienced an escalation of discrimination, threats of violence and persecution. For at least the past ten years, U.S.-based evangelical Scott Lively has participated in a conspiracy to deprive LGBTI Ugandans of their fundamental human rights. Lively has compared the effect of his work there to a “nuclear bomb” that he hopes can be replicated elsewhere. Indeed, Lively has travelled to almost forty countries, such as Russia, Latvia, and Moldova with his antigay agenda.

On March 14, 2012, the Center for Constitutional Rights, representing Sexual Minorities Uganda - a coalition of Ugandan LGBTI organizations -  filed a lawsuit against Lively for his role in the persecution of the LGBTI community in Uganda.
