Which Six Countries punish Gay Men with the Death Penalty?

The International Lesbian and Gay Association (ILGA) has issued a condemnation of yesterday’s murder of Ugandan activist David Kato. ILGA reports that Uganda is among the countries that punish male  to male relationships with imprisonment of 10 years or more. Bad, but not the worst. Death is a legal option in Mauritania, Nigeria, Sudan, Somalia, Saudi Arabia and Iran. For other interesting statistics, including which countries get gold stars, and the status of women check out the interactive map on ILGA’s main page.
