The more invisible we are to the international community, the fiercer the persecution at home – which is why we had to cancel Pride Uganda last week
• Frank Mugisha is director of Sexual Minorities Uganda
Since 2012 we have celebrated Pride in Uganda. Our Pride is very different to the Pride parades in London or New York. Rather than hundreds of thousands, we have a few hundred LGBT Ugandans, and our friends who sympathise with our struggle, attending our event. We usually keep away from big public crowds and public places to avoid confrontations.
