Call Me Kitchu opens with a seemingly harmless gathering, celebrating a same sex relationship. It soon becomes clear, however, that everyone in attendance is risking their lives. This is Uganda, where not only is homosexuality outlawed, but a witch hunt is on to out the 'kuchu'. American Christian evangelicals have dubbed Uganda 'Ground Zero' - a testing ground for new, tougher anti-homosexuality legislation, proposing the death penalty for HIV positive men, and imprisonment for anyone not reporting kuchu to the authorities. The country’s first openly gay man, David Kato, is leading a small band of activists in fighting for their right to exist - amongst a public baying for blood.
