A teacher, two businessman, and two students have been taken by police for allegedly violating Uganda's draconian new Anti-Homosexuality Act.
The draconian legislation is just intended to curb the 'open promotion of homosexuality,' in the interest of protecting children, claims the Ugandan government.
A Kenyan activist, Ugandan asylum-seeker, and the American Jewish World Service hope to raise awareness about east Africa's beleaguered LGBT community, even as hundreds reportedly flee Uganda.
Uganda's virulently antigay foreign minister will take office in September.
On Wednesday, the United Nations General Assembly is set to elect Uganda's foreign minister as president. LGBT advocates say that spells bad news for the international body.
