Anti-Gay Bill Introduced in Uganda
On Feb. 7, Uganda took again the same large step backward it had taken in 2009. The member of parliament David Bahati reintroduced his anti-homosexuality bill. The proposed legislation would impose a life sentence for any consensual same-sex act and the death penalty for "aggravated homosexuality," which includes same-sex acts by a person with H.I.V. or with a minor. Gays in Uganda are seeking refuge in neighboring Kenya and farther abroad.

It isn't easy being gay almost anywhere in Africa: homosexuality is criminalized in 37 countries on the continent. But even against that backdrop, Uganda has distinguished itself for its hostility to same-sex freedoms.
