The Current, a radio show in Canada hosted by Anna Maria Tremonti, did a piece on the current situation of LGBT people in Uganda in light of new proposed legislation that would further criminalize homosexuality and create penalties for people who support the rights of LGBT people.
Listen to the report on The Current‘s website.
The Current‘s summary: Pt 3 – Gays in Uganda
A proposed new law would require Ugandans to report gays and lesbians to police. The proposed law has left the LGBT community outraged but also afraid.
Anna spoke to Julius Kagwa from SMUG, the blogger from GayUganda, Jeff Sharlet who wrote “The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power” and Monica Mbaru, IGLHRC’s Africa Program Coordinator.
