As Africa continues to advance, it is being forced to adopt many new ways of life, some of which are a complete change in what Africans believe in and how they do things. While some of these changes have had a positive impact, others have been met with serious resistance, mainly because they go against the traditional norms. One of such practices is homosexuality. Although some African countries are slowly accepting same-sex marriages, many are still very categorical in their denunciation of the idea. Some have even made it a capital offense punishable by death. Many members of the LGBT community in these countries have been forced hide their sexuality while others have fled their homes for fear of being attacked. In Uganda for instance, same-sex relationships have been illegal since British colonial rule, and in the neighboring Tanzania, the situation is not different.
