African activists from more than a dozen human rights organizations are fighting back against one of the primary sources of new anti-LGBTQ+ legislation sweeping the continent. The groups from countries including Uganda, where President Yoweri Museveni signed the East African nation’s notorious “Kill the Gays” law in May, are calling on multinational computer chip corporation Intel to bring a high-ranking executive to account for his participation in formulating and promoting anti-LGBTQ+ policies in Africa through the Arizona-based group Family Watch International. In a change.org petition, the human rights organizations accuse Greg Slater, Intel’s vice-president of global regulatory affairs, of being “actively responsible for exporting, financing, and spreading hate, homophobia” across the continent through the group, which he co-founded with his wife, Sharon Slater.
