More About Uganda
The “Kill the Gays” bill, introduced in 2009 and supported in large part by American Evangelists, originally aimed to make homosexuality punishable by death.
Although the bill was eventually nullified in 2014, it was responsible for a spike of deadly anti-LGBTI violence which continues to this day.
Parliament also passed a Registration of Persons Act in 2015 which prohibits intersex people from choosing the gender they prefer unless they are 21 years old, and in 2016 passed the NGO Act which threatens the existence of LGBTI organizations in Uganda.
Uganda remains one of the most dangerous places in the world to be LGBTI.
More About Mozambique
In 2015, Mozambique decriminalized homosexuality by removing a clause which penalized “vices against nature” from its penal code. The decriminalization was considered a significant victory, and secured Mozambique's place as a leader in LGBTI rights in Africa.
Despite these positive victories, the government refuses to register Mozambique's sole LGBTI rights organization, Lambda, as an official NGO within the country, hindering its ability to work for the rights of the LGBTI community.
Additionally, the media contributes to perpetrating stereotypes of LGBTI people by engaging in sensationalistic reporting.
