More than 110 people reported incidents including arrests, sexual violence, evictions and public undressing, to advocacy group Sexual Minorities Uganda (Smug) in February alone. Transgender people were disproportionately affected, said the group. “We haven’t seen anything like this in years,” said Frank Mugisha, director of Smug.
