The offices of Women and Gender Studies, LGBTQ Resources, African and 
African American Studies, the Folklore Department, the Office of International 
Programs and Services are co-sponsoring a film screening and panel discussion 
on Monday, March 18, 4:30-7 p.m. in the JC Cinema. Getting Out, produced by 
the Refugee Law Project at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda, explores 
the reality that for some LGBTI Africans, “coming out” is not an option. Before 
they can “come out,” they first have to “get out.” This means not only finding a 
way to escape the political forces promoting homophobia at home, but also 
confronting the hypocrisies and failings of asylum systems around the world.

Filmed in Uganda, South Africa, Geneva, and London, Getting Out depicts the 
stories of five individuals navigating their way through this complex issue. The 
film screening will be followed by a panel discussion on transnational sexualities 
and human rights featuring two top scholars in the field, Dr. Amy Shuman, 
author of Rejecting Refugees: Political Asylum in the 21st Century, and Dr. 
Wendy Hesford, author of Spectacular Rhetorics: Human Rights, Visions, 
Recognitions, Feminisms. Reception will follow the event. Attached you will find 
an event flyer that you can forward to your students. If you have any questions 
about the event, please email Marisa Allison at [log in to unmask] 
All are welcome!
