Jay Mulucha, Uganda, Basketball
Jay is a 32 year-old transgender basketball player. "In Uganda, being gay is illegal. You can be beaten, arrested, evicted from your home, jailed or killed," he says. Despite being expelled from the university, dismissed by his family and assaulted, he wants to begin living openly as a gay man."They feel at home, but they have a lot of challenges, to find money for transportation, food, their equipment. It makes them lose moral. But such a team is unique, we are proud."
