Tell Uganda to Back Off Extremely Anti-Gay Legislation

Uganda's Parliament is currently debating an anti-homosexuality bill that would take drastic measures to "wipe out" LGBT people from the country. Among the provisions called for in this bill would be imprisonment for LGBT people, death penalty sentences for HIV-positive people, and jail terms for straight allies who support LGBT rights. Urge the Ugandan Ambassador to the United States to take a message back to his country that human rights activists won't stand for this kind of barbaric legislation.
