Description:

Protecting morals2013, 88 pages

This report from Ugandan organisations The Civil Society Coalition on Human Rights and Constitutional Law (CSCHRCL) and Human Rights Awareness and Promotion Forum (HRAPF) is a voice in the debate on the Anti-Homosexuality Bill.

The laws criminalising same-sex conduct in Uganda have been in existence since Uganda became
a British protectorate late in the 19th century. No single conviction or even acquittal (indicating
a full trial) has been found in the law books in Kampala in the last five years (2007 –2011), and
arguably none has ever been recorded in Uganda’s legal history. Nevertheless, the laws are used
every day to intimidate, harass, and degrade LGBTI persons.
