Photojournalist and Pulitzer Center grantee Daniella Zalcman discusses her work documenting Uganda’s defiant community of LGBT activists, and their country’s ongoing efforts to criminalize sexual identity. Zalcman will show images from “Double Lives” and “Faces of Faith,” projects documenting Uganda’s LGBT community and a cross-section of views on homosexuality from Uganda’s religious leaders. A reception will follow the discussion.

Her work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, TIME, Sports Illustrated, and Vanity Fair, among others.
