While in North America, the battle for equal rights for gays and lesbians has taken great strides, in Africa, just being gay can put your life in danger. And nowhere is this more evident than in Uganda, and director Roger Ross Williams (an Oscar winner for his documentary short "Music By Prudence") explores the intersection of religion and homosexuality in his forthcoming "God Loves Uganda."

God Loves Uganda

While in North America, the battle for equal rights for gays and lesbians has taken great strides, in Africa, just being gay can put your life in danger. And nowhere is this more evident than in Uganda, and director Roger Ross Williams (an Oscar winner for his documentary short "Music By Prudence") explores the intersection of religion and homosexuality in his forthcoming "God Loves Uganda."

Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January and doing the rounds stopping in San Francisco, Nantucket and more, the doc exposes the unsettling American connection to an extreme brand of evangelicalism in Uganda that is behind some of the more draconian laws being proposed, including the death penalty for homosexuals. It's chilling stuff, and in this exclusive clip, we see the influence of anti-gay activist Scott Lively, a loud fringe element at home, who has a much bigger soapbox to air his hateful views in Uganda.

Check it out below and be sure to see "God Loves Uganda" as it rolls out to theaters. It opens in New York City today and Los Angeles on October 18th with more cities to follow.
