Red Pepper newspaper's headline on Tuesday read "EXPOSED! Uganda's 200 Top Homos Named." The incident was reminiscent of a November 2010 Ugandan Rolling Stone (not associated with America's Rolling Stone magazine) tabloid's list of 100 Ugandan gays and lesbians with a banner that said "hang them."
President Museveni signed the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, introduced in 2009, into law on Monday. Under the new law, those found guilty of "aggravated homosexuality" may face life in prison. Outreach to gays and lesbians may also result in prison time, a provision that could impact rights groups and LGBT support and service providers.
