Contact These Uganda Polls About the Anti-Homosexuality Bill

Jim Burroway

November 25th, 2012

This list comes via Ugandan LGBT advocate Kasha Jacqueline. The Anti-Homosexuality Bill could come to a vote as early as this week. To be effective, please be polite, but also be firm. The best rule of thumb to observe would be to put yourself into their shoes and try to imagine the arguments that would appeal to you. Also remember that all Ugandan are as proud of their country as you are of yours. Insults will inevitably backfire, and it will be LGBT Ugandans suffering the consequences, not those who sit comfortably in countries far away lobbing emails and phone calls. Don’t given them propaganda that can be used against your brothers and sisters. Ugandan LGBT advocates also strongly advise that bringing up foreign aid is another sure-fire way to provoke a backfire.

For reference to specific parts of the bill, please refer to our detailed examination of the nineteen clauses of the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, beginning here.
