Citibank, Barclays Urged to Condemn Uganda's "Kill the Gays" Bill

Citibank, Barclays Urged to Condemn Uganda's "Kill the Gays" Bill

Change_1_0

A new Change.org petition is calling on Citibank and Barclays to take a stand against Uganda's antihomosexuality bill.

In addition to being two of the world's largest banks, both Citibank and Barclays have received praise for the support they've shown to their LGBT employees and customers. And Barclays was recently named the most LGBT-friendly company in Scotland.

Now that Ugandan legislators have reintroduced what the media has dubbed the "kill the gays" bill, which would make homosexuality punishable by life in prison or death, Citibank and Barclays are being called on because both have major operations in Uganda.

According to the petition, which was created by Collin Burton of Washington, D.C., "Citibank and Barclays have unique and necessary voices that could help stop this bill in its tracks. Their presence in Uganda is significant, and their voices in opposition to the Anti-Homosexuality Bill could have a profound impact in keeping LGBT people safe in Uganda."
