A lesbian activist living in Uganda spoke out via Skype to tell the world what the country's proposed Anti-Homosexuality Bill would mean for her, her partner, and her family and friends.
The president of the Family Research Council had claimed in a tweet that Uganda is a "modern example of a nation prospered by God," and he's not taking that back.
The woman asked her members of Parliament to reject the so-called "kill the gays" bill.
The draft resolution approved in the Third Committee of the General Assembly mentions gender identity as a characteristic warranting protection from unlawful executions for the first time.
A St. Petersburg court dismissed the charges against the pop star, who was accused of promoting “homosexual propaganda” when she spoke for gay rights this past summer.
The Anti-Homosexuality Bill is scheduled to be debated in the Ugandan parliament before December 15.
