"I know I can be beaten, I know I can be raped, I know I can be killed. But I am not going to leave. We are stronger as a community." — Kasha. (First Image) Image by Daniella Zalcman. Uganda, 2014.
Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has signed the anti-homosexuality bill into law, giving official backing to the daily harassment that affects the country’s LGBT community. And Uganda’s LGBT activists are now in more danger than ever. Their very existence is illegal. For many, the only way to survive, short of fleeing the country, will be to go back into the closet and reinvent their public identities. Any allies who might have provided support in the past—public health workers, lawyers, landlords, taxi drivers—have just been criminalized as well.
When the only way to stay safe is to stay secret, even the most defiant activists have to keep a part of themselves hidden to survive. Pulitzer Center grantee Daniella Zalcman snapped these double exposures with an iPhone as a reflection on the need to lead a double life. This is what it means to be gay and illegal.

These lyrics have been going through my head over and over. This verse is the answer: how do I get through this situation? How do I keep my eyes on Christ? How do I know if God will provide? Simple. By the blood that was shed by Jesus Christ, my redemption, my freedom, my answers are purchased. And by the word of our testimonies—I will stand on what I KNOW God has done for me and what He has done for others.
love Tye tribbetts cover!!!!
BRINGING SISSONES BACK: Not gonna lie, this is one of our favourite pieces from the new collection.
“Many of the questions we ask God can’t be answered directly, not because God doesn’t know the answers but because our questions don’t make sense. As C.S. Lewis once pointed out, many of our questions are, from God’s point of view, rather like someone asking, “Is yellow square or round?” or “How many hours are there is a mile?”
