“Call Me Kuchu” follows Uganda’s first openly gay man, David Kato, and retired Anglican Bishop Christopher Senyonjo as they work against the clock to defeat an “Anti-Homosexuality Bill,” inspired in part by American evangelical missionaries.

As they work to combat the Bill, which proposes death for HIV-positive gay men and prison for anyone who fails to turn in a known homosexual, they must also fight vicious persecution in their daily lives.
