Gala Uganda

http://galainitiativeug.blogspot.co.uk/
Gala Initiative Uganda, also known as simply Gala Uganda, is an NGO formed in 2001 in Uganda, designed to improve the lives and to increase the visibility of LGBT people in Uganda. In 2013, Gala decided to change its focus from handling LGBTI issues in general to tackling specifically matters related to Bisexuals. The organisation maintains their Facebook and Twitter, in addition to the abandoned, yet very informative website: http://www.freewebs.com/galauganda/
