Ugandan President Museveni: Stop the "Kill the Gays" bill

Within days, a horrific Anti-Homosexuality Bill that would impose criminal penalties for "promoting homosexuality" could be passed by Uganda’s Parliament.

Notoriously referred to as the ‘Kill the Gays’ bill, the legislation could impose life sentences for people who engage in consensual same-sex relationships. This gruesome legislation would strengthen an already brutal Ugandan criminal law against homosexuality by introducing the death penalty for "serial offenders."

International pressure from world leaders and advocates stopped the bill in its tracks when it was last tabled in April 2011. If we speak out together now, we could get it shelved again before it goes to vote.

The lives of hundreds of thousands of Ugandans are at stake. We must take action right now.

Tell Ugandan President Museveni: Stop the "Kill the Gays" bill.

To:
Ugandan President Museveni
It's outrageous and inhumane that Ugandan lawmakers are seriously considering passing a bill that would make being gay or lesbian a crime punishable by execution. Speak out against this 'Kill the Gays' bill immediately, and vow to veto this reprehensible legislation.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      people should be able to freely enter a mutually loving relationship without censure.

      This legislation is morally and ethically wrong. It reflects the random, irrational hatred of the few holding power. It takes away from the real issues which need addressing in Uganda. It will give credence to the fascists/bully boys/baying mobs mentality of the few. it will give the rest of the world the mpression of a backward and savage society with which the majority will want no truck.

      This bill is beyond disgusting. Its another holocaust waiting to happen and we will not tolerate such hate and discrimination over something as banal as sexual preference!!
