The human rights of LGBT people in Uganda

Hi ,

There is a dangerous proposal that threatens the human rights of LGBT people in Uganda. If passed, the Anti-Homosexuality Bill would start a witch-hunt for homosexuals in the country.

Tell Uganda's President Museveni that people should not be criminalized for sexual orientation or gender identity. »

The bill's punishments include:
  • a life sentence for people in same-sex marriages
  • jail for anyone who doesn't report suspected LGBT activity within 24 hours
  • extradition and prosecution of LGBT Ugandans living abroad
The bill also endangers HIV/AIDS programs, and may be exploited by those wanting to abolish these programs.

This proposed legislation is anti-ethical, anti-equality and anti-human rights. President Museveni must denouce and oppose this law.
Act now! »

Thanks for taking action!
