About Pride Munyonyo

Pride munyonyo is community LGBT empowerment umbrella .it’s a non-profit Organisation and of our activities safe, accessible. We raise one voice for the voiceless LGBT people in our community or society. Those who have been neglected because of their morals like same sex couples e.g. gays.Pride munyonyo is engaging with various members and groups of our community to receive feedback and discuss ways we can address concerns in order to improve as an organisation.

We meet twice a week to exchange ideas and check on each other progress regarding the different assignment we are working on. We have also reflected on our past and acknowledged that we haven’t always handled challenging situation like The Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Act, 2014 (previously called the "Kill the Gaysbill" in the western mainstream media due to death penalty clauses proposed in the original version) was passed by the Parliament of Uganda on 20 December 2013 with life in prison substituted for the death penalty.We have come up with now what we call Pride.

Be part of us Pride Munyonyo was originally established BY Mr Lukyamuzi Acram Musisi an lgbt activists in April 2012 with the ambition to help with LGBTQI persons from East Africa domestically within Uganda and more in Africa . As our activism, reach and extent of our work grew to international rather than domestic, we together decided to let Pride Munyonyo become an independent organization that can reach its potentials and fulfill its domestic & international goals.

Testimonals

Love is every one religon . It’s time to give a damn about the suicide risk of our gay and transgender youth. Not just because all kids deserve to know that someone cares about them, but also because research has shown that giving a damn actually makes a huge difference in the lives of gay and transgender teens. Peer support groups, teacher training, a caring adult — all help lower the suicide risk among gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth. It’s time to give a damn, because growing up should be about making friends, discovering the world and discovering yourself—not about finding a way to end your pain and end your life. Get informed, get involved.

What originally brought me to Pride Munyonyo Lgbt Resouce Center was my need for a social and support group to help me and my then spouse to develop an understanding of my gender identity issues and work through out feelings… I could no longer live with the constant bullying from other Students at his high school . The Center provides a safe space to meet that is affordable to the transgender community, many of whom have underpaying jobs or no whatsoever. It also affords a place for other LGBT community groups that I work with such as Lesbian Alliance , to meet and connect.

When I was coming out, Pride Munyonyo Lgbt Resource Center was a tremendous resource for me. Having a safe space and supportive community helped me overcome personal challenges and build confidence. The Center helped me become the person I am today afrter being bullied by his classmates for being gay.

As someone who cares about LGBT people who need help, I think supporting the Pride Munyonyo Lgbt Resource Center is essential. And besides that, They bring together a very diverse mix of LGBT professionals from diferent Africa Region – people I would probably have never met otherwise who are now my friends.

As a gay senior, the Pride Munyonyo Lgbt Resource Center is the perfect place to expand my network of friends. No matter if I am HIV positive or not.No matter if I am gay,straight,bi,or transgender. I have a right to love and be loved and pursue my happiness . It’s also great to be at a place where we’re connecting with Eveyone who are still sorting things out. I find it energizing and I think it’s good for the young people to interact with older folks who have struggled with the same issues many of them are experiencing…and then some…but have managed to build happy lives here at Pride Munyonyo Lgbt Center.

We all have a right to search for love. I have discovered I am not alone. I have friends who have sat at home, took their medication and stayed away from the world just like I did. I am taking a stand against being lonely once and for all . We can live in happiness and leave behind those feelings of being sad and alone . I know what you are going through and you know what I’m going through, so why not be a part of a friendship or relationship and go through this together.come and stand together at pride Munyonyo Lgbt Resource Center.
