Uganda is working to stamp out groups promoting human rights for LGBTIQ people


The Ugandan Government’s National Bureau for Non-Governmental organization is currently investigating the operations of 22 NGOs suspected to be involved in so called “promotion of LGBTIQ activities”. The NGO Bureau has made a hit list and is threatening to “comprehensively criminalize” activities that promote homosexuality in the country and lay down stringent requirements for registration of civil society organizations. There is no such thing as “promoting homosexuality”. All organizations on the list either provide shelter or legal/advocacy/ health services for sexuality and gender identity minorities whose lives and liberty have been threatened, causing people to be forcibly displaced from the resulting persecution and violence.
