Award-winning photojournalist Daniella Zalcman has documented Uganda’s defiant community of LGBT activists, and their country’s ongoing efforts to criminalize sexual identity. The Pulitzer Center grantee comes to the Newseum Thursday, Dec. 11, to discuss her work and show images from “Double Lives” and “Faces of Faith,” which show a cross-section of views on homosexuality from Uganda’s religious leaders. A reception will follow the conversation.

Zalcman’s work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, TIME, Sports Illustrated, and Vanity Fair, among others. Her photographs have been exhibited throughout the U.S. and Europe and are part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. She graduated from Columbia University in 2009 with a degree in architecture.

This free event is presented by The Pulitzer Center and the Religious Freedom Center of the Newseum Institute.  Registration is required. RSVP here.
