Scott Mills

Scott Mills’ documentary World’s Worst Place To Be Gay is certainly an eye-opener for coddled Americans like ourselves. The investigation into the rampant homophobia facing the LGBT community in Uganda originally aired in the UK on BBC, but thanks to the magic of the internet, we’re bringing it to you in four parts on YouTube.

Pour yourself a glass of wine, pull your loved one close, and please watch this documentary in full. Join Mills, a gay man himself, as he leaves the acceptance of London behind, and departs for Uganda – the country proposing subjecting homosexuals to the death penalty, and the place where gay rights activist David Kato was murdered.

It’s not all Gaga videos and tongue-in-cheek criticism of the church here at UB. Please join us for this incredibly moving documentary. Enjoy.

Well, what did you think?

    Whipping up the homophobia frenzy allows those in power in Uganda–many political, governmental, and religious groups–to ignore real problems, problems which, if solved, would truly benefit Ugandans. What problems? Sanitation.Jobs. Abject poverty. Lack of healthcare. Roads.

    This film made me cry. Killed for being yourself is a horrible fate. Thanks for sharing, it was very enlightening.

    It is absolutely horrific to view how high levels of illiteracy, colonialism and religious extremism can combine to become so influential. The citizens in the film fundamentally believe the doctrine which has been presented forth and have become paralyzed in challenging perceptions critically. From this documentary I believe it is crucial to remember to question ideologies and to avoid passively assuming them to be true.

    It is horrific to see how colonialism, high levels of illiteracy and religious extremism can combine to be so influential. The citizens in the film are clearly paralyzed in the ability to question ideologies that are presented to them. I believe the one thing to take away from the film is to remember to question that which is understood to be “right” or “true” rather that to just passively accept any sort of doctrine.
