The new 52-page magazine is focused on mental health and intimate- partner violence within the sex worker and LGBTQ communities. Copies are been widely distributed across the country by the organization’s volunteers.

Ugandan activist Kasha Jacqueline Nabagesera, who is The executive director and editor-in-chief of the magazine, said she was more than excited to have the publication finally published.

“It is very thrilling to finally put out the fourth edition of our annual publication. It has so far been the hardest edition to put together but the topic of choice couldn’t be more timely! We cannot win any struggle if we are not healthy at heart, mind and soul. I hope mental health and intimate-partner violence will now be talked about more openly both within our community and country at large,” she said.
