SMUG is a non-profit network of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) human rights organisations. SMUG was born on 4 March 2004. It was created to work towards achieving full legal and social equality for LGBTI people in Uganda. This would be done through organising all LGBTI organisations in Uganda to create one strong LGBTI community. It would then work on behalf of its member organisations, enforcing their activities and representing them in a more organised manner by coordination of efforts through local, regional and international bodies or partners. SMUG has now developed into a network of 18 LGBTI member organisations in Uganda all working to advance the rights of LGBTI persons and improve their welfare. It is advocacy that has made SMUG an integral part of the human rights struggle in Uganda.
