Now is the time to make some noise and take action in support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex community in Uganda!
The fate of a Bill which would further criminalize Uganda’s LGBTI community is in the hands of Uganda President Musevini. The text of the Bill has not been made public but it is expected to include harsh penalties for anyone engaging in same-sex sexual activity and significantly hamper the work of human rights defenders and public health professionals.
The President can sign, veto, or return the Bill to Parliament with suggested amendments. He has 30 days to make a decision… and the 30 day countdown started on January 23rd.
Uganda’s LGBTI community needs you to call on President Musevini to veto the Bill and protect the human rights of all Ugandans!
