As the world waits for President Yoweri Museveni to sign the hateful Anti-Homosexuality Bill into law, activists in Uganda and around the world are mobilizing.
The president releases a statement saying that signing the bill "will mark a serious setback for all those around the world who share a commitment to freedom, justice and equal rights.”
The lawmaker will sign an anti-homosexuality bill that mandates sentences — including life in prison — for those accused of either having sex with members of their own gender, not reporting LGBT people to authorities, or supporting LGBT people or civil rights.
From Iceland to Ireland, and Topeka, Kan., to Washington, D.C., activists around the world stood in solidarity Monday with LGBT Ugandans fighting to defeat a bill that would criminalize their very existence.
A team of antigay lawmakers 'with medical backgrounds' have prepared a report for Uganda's president that claims to have scientific evidence that homosexuality is 'culturally acquired' and curable.
Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni said he will only sign the country's 'pAnti-Homosexuality Bill'p if scientists can prove that gay people are not born that way
President Yoweri Museveni refused to sign the Anti-Homosexuality Bill at this point but still said that gay people are 'abnormal.'
Although the prime minister used derogatory words to refer to and equate gay people and the mentally handicapped, he was actually calling for marginal tolerance.
