A Ugandan tabloid magazine recently published an write-up labeled “top two hundred homos”. Which claimed that people today who were not brazenly gay are gay. In America becoming on some Best two hundred most influential gay record in a annually write-up might be found as a badge of honor. But in a nation this kind of as Uganda the place they’re draconian rules in spot that make becoming an homosexual a punishable offense. This is a loss of life sentence for the people today on this record. Due to the fact just a several yrs ago a further Ugandan magazine published a identical record the place a Ugandan LGBT activist was murdered. The day in advance of the Ugandan President signed a invoice that place harsher sentences on for becoming gay. A great deal of people today might request what is the purpose for this taking place. There has been a modern surge suitable wing American Evangelical Christian groups that go to Uganda and numerous other countries to drive anti-gay propaganda to the local populace. Also this nation is 1 of the poorest in the environment with just about 40 p.c of the populace living on a lot less than a dollar a day. Uganda on the HDI index is ranked shut to the base of this record. So with so numerous socioeconomic situation the govt as a substitute fixing these problems wishes to be lazy and blame minority groups for their individual incompetence. It can be extremely identical to when the Nazi the place starting up choose control of Germany and blamed the Jews for the treaty of Versailles. I consider that there needs to be financial sanctions place on Uganda right up until these rules are off the textbooks.
