After her sexuality became public knowledge she was harassed by Ugandan sports officials, she was also raped, beaten and discriminated against because of her sexuality.

Ugandan tabloid Red Pepper reported: “the rugger chick who carries  a scar on the face and wears short, spiky dreadlocks explained that it was inevitable to quit Uganda, saying, “the men told me: Until you stop being a lesbian, we will continue to do this to you.”

Lilian Ikulmet is looking to ding a job and apply for a visa for her girlfriend.  This news comes soon after David Cameron said he would cut aid to Uganda and other countries with homophobic laws unless they change their policies.
