In Uganda, a new bill threatens to make homosexuality punishable by death. David Kato – Uganda’s first openly gay man – along with retired Anglican Bishop Christopher Senyonjo and his fellow activists work against the clock to defeat the legislation while combating vicious persecution in their daily lives. But no one, not even the filmmakers can be prepared for the brutal murder that shakes the movement to its core and sends shock waves around the world. Katherine Fairfax Wright and Malika Zouhall Worrall stop by to talk about one of the most inspirational human rights activist in recent history.
