FARUG STATEMENT ON INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY 2020.
Womyn’s Day is globally celebrated every 8th of March under different themes. This year’s international womyn’s day theme is ‘I AM GENERATION EQUALITY’. In Uganda, Freedom and Roam Uganda, (FARUG), Lady mermaids Bureau, (LMB), Fem Alliance Uganda, (FEMA) and Transgender Equality Uganda, (TEU) have come together to celebrate our progress in calling for inclusion of Lesbians, Bisexual, Queer, (LBQ) womyn, Sex workers and transgender womyn.
This consortium is aimed at amplifying voices of womyn who have often been referred to minority and continue to sideline and discriminated based on gender identity, sexual orientation and sex work.
