Uganda Anti Homosexuality Act

Posted Apr 24 2014 12:18pm
The Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Act, 2014 (previously called the "Kill the Gays bill" in the media) was submitted by Member of Parliament David Bahati on 14 October 2009 & passed by the Parliament of Uganda on 20 December 2013 with the death penalty proposal dropped in favor of life in prison . The bill was signed into law by the President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda on 24 February 2014.



The legislative proposal would broaden the criminalization of same-sex relations in Uganda domestically, and further includes provisions for Ugandans who engage in same-sex relations outside of Uganda, asserting that they may be extradited for punishment back to Uganda, and includes penalties for individuals, companies, media organizations, or non-governmental organizations that know of gay people or support LGBT rights.
