World’s Worst Place to Be Gay

18 Feb

DJ Scott MIlls

DJ Scott Mills traveled to Uganda for a BBC on being gay in that country— routinely cited as one of (if not the least) tolerant places in the world. For much of the documentary (available on YouTube), he does not openly disclose his sexuality, fearing people would not speak to him if they knew the truth. In one part, though, he meets a witch doctor who attempts to cure him of “being gay,” since people in Uganda believe it is a lifestyle choice.

The “ritual” consisted of having a live chicken rubbed over Mills’ back, then having a flame extinguished over his head. It didn’t appear that he was taking it too seriously.
