We can only hope that the increasingly heightened visability will continue to shine light into this very dark situation. Thank you BTB for all you have and are doing – your efforts, along with others concerned about basic human rights, will save the lives of many in Uganda.

ALL international governments should hold back any and all financial aid to this country and others that promote homophobia. Money talks.
These so-called christians are inciting terror. Take away their tax-exempt cards!

Ditto what Paul in Canada said.

Is there anything being done to help LGBT Ugandans escape before the law passes? I’d be eager to legally marry someone to give the refuge outside the continent.

You’d think that the Ugandans would have better things to worry about than gay Ugandans.

It’s outrageous! Don’t they have problems with diseases like HIV, poverty and famine?

Seems to me that those issues would take precedence over homosexuality…

Thanks to BTB for staying on the story until mainstream news media starts to take notice! :)

I believe that Ugandans blame these national “curses” on the gays!

It’s because of the gay people in Uganda that they have these things.

In their mind, if they were to get rid of every single gay in Uganda, then Uganda would be blessed by God and everything would be perfect! No more diseases, no more poverty and no more famine!
