Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni Signs Controversial Anti-Gay Legislation into Law, Prompting International Condemnation

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has signed a controversial new anti-gay legislation into law, which prescribes the death penalty for “aggravated homosexuality” and life imprisonment for those found to have engaged in same-sex sexual acts. The law has been widely condemned by rights activists and the United Nations, who argue that it violates the human rights of LGBTQ individuals in Uganda. It has also been met with both praise and criticism in Uganda, with many arguing that it is necessary to protect the country’s traditional values.
