With Uganda’s controversial Anti-Homosexuality Act being challenged in court, Biden-Harris administration officials are vowing to continue holding the African nation accountable, even as the United States simultaneously works to reestablish ties on the continent after years of dormant engagement. Uganda’s law, which penalizes homosexual acts, including the death penalty for so-called “aggravated homosexuality,” has received considerable condemnation from the U.S. and Europe since being signed into law by President Yoweri Museveni in May. The law requires the public, including health professionals, to report individuals suspected of engaging in same-sex relations. The law even requires that landlords evict those who identify or are suspected to be LGBTQ or face years in prison.
