Action Alert: Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” bill up for a vote tomorrow

This infamous piece of legislation, which would introduce a death penalty in Uganda for people found guilty of homosexual conduct, is up for a vote tomorrow.

Life is already bad in Uganda for LGBT people – all of my LGBT friends from there have had to flee from their lives, and have some of the most horrifying, brutal stories of any LGBT refugees I know.  The Gay Highwaymen did a story on David Kato’s murder in Uganda earlier this year.

Want to do something about it? Credo Action has introduced this petition, which it will deliver to the president of Uganda. AllOut.org has another petition, as well as instructions for how to call your country’s representative in Uganda. Please consider signing, calling, and voicing your concerns about this legislation.
