For the Ugandan LGBT Youth Asylum architecture competition, Bee Breeders architecture competition organisers were inspired by the work of multi award-winning filmmaker, and Ugandan LGBT activist, Kamoga Hassan. This competition seeks to generate ideas for a youth centre that can support the local LGBT population in what is a strict and dangerous society for LGBT individuals.
The Ugandan LGBT Youth Asylum should offer practical and psychological support for those youth most affected by the country’s strict anti-gay laws. The work of the brave filmmaker Kamoga Hassan, whose projects highlight just how dangerous it can be for LGBT individuals living in this East African country, highlights why an LGBT youth centre is so important.
