Call me Kuchu

 
‘Call me Kuchu’ is a new film about homophobia made as adocu-drama concerning the adoption of a new law in Uganda making it illegal tobe gay. Not only that, but Gay/HIV positive individuals face execution. The film raises issues I suspect many men and women would rather not confront. As a nation, our people fought way back in our history against slavery, they established women’s rights and they died in a war against Nazism; they have entered wars always believing they were on the side of right, justice and fairness – at least that is what I was brought up to believe.
 
How then can we possibly keep our heads down in the international arena and allow right-wing Fascist movements to extoll the virtues of their utter prejudices against any minority group?  Although of mixed origins, I remain British through and through and like most fair-minded people in this country, I believe in justice. Picking on gay people because of their sexuality cheapense verything our nation has done in the name of liberty throughout history. We owe it to ourselves to shelve our own prejudices and support those who are discriminated against, be it gays/lesbians now or Catholics, Protestants, Muslims or Jews or any minority group in the future.  People of good conscience believe in equalopportunities and rights for all.
 
Me? I now recognise at the age of 62 that I was once a bit of a homophobe but age and experience of life has taught me that such prejudice has its roots in stupidity and ignorance.Watch this film and you will perhaps understand the right of it. I’m no sort ofactivist for any camp (no pun intended) but I do feel strongly about prejudice against minorities. What is happening in Uganda offends me. I wonder, does it not offend all British people?
