Jesus Take The Wheel: The Rise of Homophobia in Uganda!
I tell you what Uganda is not a place for you to be if you're apart of the homosexual community. Since a Ugandan MP proposed the death penalty for some gay people, homophobia has been on the rise in other parts of Africa. Virulent homophobia is on the rise in Uganda. In 2014, the Ugandan President signed into law the infamous "Anti-Homosexuality Bill," which in its original version went as far as mandating the death penalty just for being gay. After an international outcry, the entire law was struck down. But now, a new version of the bill is in the works. Isobel Yeung travels to Uganda to meet some of the anti-gay leaders teaching intolerance to Uganda's youth, and uncovers disturbing ties between their message and the lessons that American fundamentalists have been pushing for years.
