On Aug 4, members of the LGBT community gathered in Entebbe for a series of events including a party, beach parade and film screenings. The police raided the first Ugandan pride gathering on Aug 4 and 10 people were reportedly detained by police, according to 76crimes.com, a blog which focuses on the "human toll of 76 countries’ anti-gay laws and the struggle to repeal them."
"The Pride March had a truly carnival atmosphere and was spoiled by the arbitrary action of the police. None of the other beach goers complained about the events at the march as there was nothing to complain about!
"Everything was done very tastefully as the organizers were aware that it was a public beach and many young children were around. Many parents even brought their kids over to hear the music and listen to the few speeches and share in the jubilant atmosphere. The Pride organizers even shared food and drinks freely with the onlookers.
By all accounts, the Parade was a huge success 🙂 for more on the parade and its great success go to;
