Against the Order of Nature

We saw this in The Huffington Post: 'Against The Order Of Nature,' Lee Price Project, To Document LGBT Uganda and though it was an interesting and worthwhile project. 

Though there may be problems with crowd-sourcing an idea like this, as it could jeopardise his chances of getting a visa. Having advertised his intention to enter the country as an openly gay man, it could even lead to his arrest now that the bill has been adopted by parliament and is awaiting assent. Might find himself sharing a cell with Bernard Randall. Also, being caught with video footage of gay people you've interviewed not only compromises your own freedom, but also theirs.

This is the problem once human rights start to get shut down, the ability to document abuses becomes more difficult. Often why reporting goes undercover.
