concerns in East Africa, in the context of racism and neocolonialism,
follows American and Ugandan religious leaders, on both sides of the issue,
responding to concerns about sexual immorality and homosexuality. Yasmin
Nair is a Chicago-based writer, activist, academic, and commentator. Her
writing and organizing address issues like neoliberalism and inequality,
queer politics and theory, the politics of rescue and
