‘Kill the Gays’ bill is back in Uganda


The “Kill the Gays” bill is back on the order of business for the Parliament of Uganda now that the assembly has reconvened for its 2013 session.

Today’s Order Paper for parliamentary business lists the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, 2009, as No. 8 in line under Notice of Business to Follow.

The bill may or may not still include the original 2009 provision calling for the death penalty, which earned it the nickname “Kill the Gays” bill.

The bill would stiffen Uganda’s  already-strict punishments for homosexual activity and would require citizens, including parents, pastors and doctors, to tell police about suspected homosexuals, including their children, parishioners and patients.

For many days near the end of the 2012 session, the bill remained on the parliament’s Order Paper  without ever being acted upon.
