Out today: Rainbow Riots Radio - Episode 9: Sydney’s dark gay history:

Australia’s gay capital Sydney has a dark history. There was a time when gay men were being violently bashed and murdered. The police did nothing, so a group of leather lesbians decided to get on their motorcycles to patrol and protect their gay brothers. Shannon Power talks to their leader, Nora Savona, about how they saved many gay men from homophobic violence.

Help Rainbow Riots start Uganda's first LGBT community centre!
In Uganda it’s illegal to be gay. LGBT people risk being arrested or becoming victims of violence. They have no safe space. Rainbow Riots want to change this.

In 2019 we are opening Uganda’s first LGBT community centre. The centre will be a safe space to welcome the Ugandan LGBT community. With creative expression at the core of the activities, we will create inclusivity within the community whilst also reaching a wider audience through giving Ugandan LGBT people an important voice in the world.

To make this happen, Rainbow Riots needs your help. Be a part of this historic project by donating today. Donate here:

Renne Leira ModistoYo creo que en Uganda eso no se va a conseguir porque está castigada la homosexualidad con pena de muerte, y eso va ser muy difícil sacarlos a la vista, igual que en Iran y otros países Árabes que los cuelgan de una grúa ahorcados o los tiran de edificios altos con las manos atadas... Ojalá lo consigan y yo me equivoque.

Janet NakateYour intension is to confuse Ugandans but bambi tuli babuufu. A loser will always be a loser especially when s/he chooses to always do wrong things. A good example is the devil. Hope you don't end up in his bossom. As for us we say, "PEOPLEPOWEROURPOWER." You can repent all your sins and join us. God is always forgiving. Komawo eka! Do not associate yourself with the devil. He doen't deserve your life cause he can never create one. FOR GOD AND MY COUNTRY UGANDA.

Daniel R. RugajuGo read your Bible if you are looking for inclusiveness, coz there you will find forgiveness and be included in the commonwealth of God. As for now, leave our beloved country alone!

Ssemanda Bashir MugalulaHow ever much you push homosexuality in our motherland Uganda, we won't accept it... However much money you spend on it... We will still reject it.... We will boycott all those gay members in communities...... Don't force it on us.... Those who want to be that kind of people should come to your countries and do their dirty abnormality staff from there..... Imagine putting your dick in the shithole(toilet hole) ... So disgusting
