We've been a little quiet recently simply because there hasn't been a lot to report. The Ugandan parliament only sits Tuesday-Thursday, which makes for slow progress.
It's currently sitting at #2 on the order of Business to Follow, but it keeps ricocheting up and down the list. In the SMUG forum this has led to speculation that:
They just make up the numbers as they go along. Keeps people guessing.They commonly use the AHB as distraction so if something going on needs attention diverted like say corruption, stealing oil profits, etc. the AHB might rise to the top, if not needed it might drop. It's a cruel game for the queer community to suffer.
Be assured, we will post the moment something significant happens.
Meanwhile, over the past few weeks, both the UK and France have motioned to allow gay marriage. Lovely news. One of the SMUG board members posted this video today. It's a heartwarming testament to the equality of same sex marriages. Bit of feelgood in the midst of everything that's going on.
If you'd like to stay updated on other issues affecting LGBT people in Africa, there's a new Facebook group called Stop the Gay Genocide in Africa.
