Stand With Brenda

As we fight for marriage equality here in New York, we mustn’t forget that in many parts of the world being gay or transgendered is still a crime, punishable by death.   One brave young woman is fighting for her life today.  All Out explains:

Brenda Namigadde, a Ugandan lesbian in the UK, faces deportation TONIGHT on a Virgin Atlantic flight – back to the life-threatening persecution she fled eight years ago.

One of the leading figures in the LGBT movement in Uganda, David Kato, was murdered two days ago in his home. This awful tragedy makes clear what’s at stake for Brenda if she is forced to return.

Will you join more than 40,000 people in 160 countries and sign this urgent letter pressuring U.K. Home Secretary Theresa May to stop Brenda’s deportation?
