Leaders in Congress are forcefully condemning a sweeping new anti-gay law in Uganda, calling on the Biden administration to reconsider assistance to the East African nation. “Uganda’s appalling Anti-Homosexuality Act is the latest indication of Pres. Museveni’s hostility to human rights & fundamental freedoms,” Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) said Tuesday on Twitter. “Torture of political opposition, murder of the press & now a law making Uganda one of the most dangerous places for the LGBTQ+ community.” Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni signed into law sweeping legislation Monday that calls for the death penalty in cases of “aggravated homosexuality,” which the state defines as homosexual acts carried out by those infected with HIV or homosexual acts that involve children, disabled people or those drugged against their will. The law calls for life in prison for engaging in gay sex.
