TODAY: HuffPost Live to interview Uganda LGBT advocates suing Scott Lively

NEW YORK -- HuffPost Live will be interviewing Pam Spees of the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) and Pepe Onziema, the Advocacy and Policy Officer of Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG), about their federal lawsuit against anti-LGBT activist Scott Lively.

CCR and SMUG have sued pastor Lively for "crimes against humanity" in federal court under the Alien Tort Stature.

The live interview will begin at 3 pm EST/noon PST. Watch it HERE.

SDGLN Editor in Chief Ken Willilams has written extensively about the situation in Uganda, where Parliament since 2009 has been trying to pass the so-called "Kill The Gays" bill despite global condemnation of the draconian law that would include the death penalty for those convicted of being gay. Williams previewed the federal lawsuit in an article titled: The compelling case against anti-gay activist Scott Lively.

SDGLN Contributor, the Rev. Canon Albert Ogle, also frequently writes about Uganda. His latest RGOD2 column, in which he spoke on TV in New Zealand and discussed Uganda and other global LGBT issues, is titled: RGOD2: The New Zealand interview.

The SDGLN staff and SDGLN Contributor Melanie Nathan wrote about Monday's court date in the piece titled: Anti-gay pastor Scott Lively, Uganda human rights activists face off in federal court.
