Uganda's proposed anti-homosexuality bill has drawn world attention, as individuals identified as homosexual could face death or life imprisonment. The bill's proposals attack a wide array of actions, including the (quote) "promotion of homosexuality," which in effect bans organizations working to educate the public and prevent the spread of HIV and AIDS. Ugandans who know of an individual's sexual orientation as gay or lesbian, but do not report it to officials can also face up to 3 years in prison. To take a look at the history of this bill and the climate of homophobia in Uganda, Rustbelt Radio spoke with Peter Otika. Mr. Otika is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, Americorps, and he is a human rights activist and advocate. A native Ugandan, Peter is also the Director of Africa Policy Advocates.
Carlin Christy, of Pittsburgh Indymedia's Rustbelt Radio
