Uganda Proposes Gay Death Penalty

In Uganda, proposed legislation is under consideration which would impose the death penalty for certain gay individuals. Family and friends may face up to seven years in jail if they fail to report any gay family member to the authorities. Other measures are being proposed which severely penalize anyone who rents, befirends, or supports a gay individual. Gay rights activists and organizations are seeking the best ways to halt this legislation and to lend support to the growing and persecuted gay minorities in Africa. How horrifying, and how reminiscent of Nazi Germany, that such measures are being seriously considered by any country or government in the 21st century!
