‘Rolling Stone’, a weekly newspaper published in Kampala, Uganda, presented on its front page of 2 October 2010 an article entitled ‘100 Pictures of Uganda’s top homos leaked’. The publication called for homosexuals to be ‘hanged’ and exposed names, addresses and pictures of gay men and women.
In a previous ruling the newspaper was ordered to stop publishing the men and women’s details. The ruling now extends to all media outlets.
The newspaper’s editor has previously stated that he intends to “dodge the law” so it is important that the ruling is enforced. Read how you can help stop the persecution of sexual minorities in Uganda.
