In 2009 Uganda's Anti-Homosexuality Bill became a top global news story. Two years later Hillary Clinton declared """"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""Gay rights are human rights and human rights are gay rights,"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""" but still today there is little consensus on how to advance those rights beyond the U.S. and Europe. The fact is that international LGBT activism and allies have created winners and losers. In Africa those who easily identify with the identities of the global movement find support, funding and care. Those whose sexualities don't align so neatly don't.

In this faithful and moving investigation, award winning journalist Robbie Corey-Boulet shows that LGBT liberation does not look the same in Africa as it does in the United States or Europe. At a time when there is a groundswell of interest in LGBT life in Africa and attempts at reversing LGBT rights across much of the `developed' world Corey-Boulet lays bare past failures. To the extent that there exists a right way to engage on LGBT issues in Africa-and, indeed, worldwide-Love Falls on Us is for those looking to learn what it is.
