Uganda Anti-Gay rally

A Ugandan Christian wears a banner with the message “Homosexual is evil” during an anti-gay rally held by religious and political leaders who are fighting homosexuality at Christianity Focus Centre in Kampala’s biggest slum, Kisenyi in 2010. David Bahati’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill proposed that a new offence be created in Uganda named “aggravated homosexuality” which would be punishable as a capital offence. The proposals included plans to introduce the death penalty for homosexuals who practiced gay sex with people under 18, with disabled people, when the accused party is HIV-positive, or for those previously convicted of homosexuality-related offences. Homosexual acts are already illegal in Uganda and punishable by up to 14 years in prison. Bènèdicte Desrus/The Stand
