A well-known gay-rights advocate from Uganda is visiting Connecticut to speak out against legislation in his country that would make being gay a capital felony for some.
The Rev. Mark Kiyimba is scheduled to speak Thursday night at the Charter Oak Cultural Center in Hartford and Sunday at the Unitarian-Universalist Society East in Manchester.
Kiyimba runs a school for 150 orphans who have lost their parents to AIDS; and an orphanage for children infected with the virus.
