Proposed Legislation Targets Uganda’s LGBTQ Community
Lawmakers in Uganda have introduced a bill imposing tough penalties on those who engage in same-sex relations and identify as members of the LGBTQ community. The bill recently proposed in parliament would violate freedom of expression, association and non-discrimination, according to Human Rights Watch. Homosexuality is already illegal in Uganda, but critics say the new measure, if adopted, would allow for further discrimination on the basis of sexuality.
