Uganda's "Kill The Gays" Bill Could Soon Become Law

According to the Associated Press, the Ugandan Parliament is currently debating their "Kill The Gays" bill - which could soon become law.

From Joe.My.God:
If enacted, the Bill would greatly broaden the criminalisation of homosexuality by introducing the death penalty for people who have previous convictions, are HIV-positive, or engage in same sex acts with people under 18 years of age. The bill also includes provisions for Ugandans who engage in same-sex sexual relations outside of Uganda, asserting that they may be extradited for punishment back to Uganda, and includes penalties for individuals, companies, media organisations, or non-governmental organisations that support LGBT rights.

All Out has launched a petition aimed at Uganda's President. Please sign it HERE.

There is also a protest planned for tonight at the Ugandan Embassy in Washington, D.C. (via Towleroad):
Activist group GetEQUAL is holding a protest today at 4-6 p.m. at the Ugandan Embassy, 5911 15th Street NW in Washington, D.C.
If you can’t make it to the protest in person, you can call, write, and/or fax the Ugandan Ambassador to the United States. Please be polite, but firm. The contact information is: 
His Excellency Professor Perezi K. Kamunanwire
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary
Tel: (202) 726 4758
Fax: (202) 726 1727

It's the craziest thing - to think in these times Uganda wants to go back to an age which even pre-dates cave men.
