Spectrum Uganda Initiatives is pleased to announce they now have a new website.

In making the announcement, John Abdallah Wambere aka Longjones,  Co-Founder of Spectrum Uganda Initiatives, Human Rights Defender and Gay Activist said:

“Because we have been without a website for some time, I want to extend my sincere thanks to all individuals and partners who have made this possible and have continued to believe in me and the work of Spectrum Uganda Initiatives.

“We at Spectrum Uganda are immensely grateful for the support you have given us in various ways, which has allowed us to keep up the work and the vision we started with many years ago. Even in today’s hostile environment, we have continued to provide access to health services, litigation support, and counseling for gay men, other men who have sex with men (MSM), and transgender individuals.

“We reaffirm our loyalty to the this community as we continue to advocate for the right of men having sex with men and transgender men to have access to health services and to live in dignity.

“Supporting Spectrum Uganda remains important work for me, even from afar, so I am proud that this project has been achieved just a few months after the launch of a toll-free helpline.

“We believe that this website will help people understand our work even better than before. We urge you all to keep your spirits up and never falter.

Longjones added: “Think of how many people you will give a better chance of staying healthy and living to see another day. Think of how many people you will be providing with a meal before, during or after medication. Think of how many you will help provide access to mental health services.”
