Jackson Mukasa lies on his bed, resting his head on the lap of his friend, Kim Mukisa, who has dropped by for a visit. The two were beaten and arrested in January 2014, accused of homosexuality. After 5 months in jail, their case dismissed for lack of prosecution. After their release , they began life anew, having been robbed of their posessions. Mukisa, a clothing designer, also lost his atelier and shop in downtown Kampala.
