After passing, and celebrating, an Anti-Gay law in 2014, gay Uganda citizens were facing death for their sexuality. Although the law was later annulled, being gay is still viewed as obscene and an ongoing problem in the country.
In a bonus scene from the documentary, The Yes Men Are Revolting, filmmaker and activist Andy Bichlbaum was traveling to Uganda to work on their film about climate change, but felt conflicted.
In 2012, when "The Yes Men," Andy and Mike, were on their trip to Uganda to work on climate change issues, Andy worried about his safety in the country.
Traveling through Dubai, the guys felt they were already entering risky territory, as they read a story about a trial concerning men "seducing" other men in the Khaleej Times.
After landing in Uganda, Mike asked a taxi driver about how the country felt about homosexuality. He responded by telling them, "everyone is against it," and gay men recruit little boys to join them.
Mike wore a "gay" shirt to see how their Ugandan friends and fellow activists would react, and even they were even a little uneasy.
That night, Andy decided to come out to his new friends, but Albert thought it was a joke.
Once Albert knew Andy was being serious, he started asking questions out of curiosity.
Remember that driver at the beginning of the video? Andy decided to come out to him, and he immediately apologized.
If anything, this was a deeply personal trip for Andy.
