A law that will imprison LGBT+s is expected in Uganda

Uganda's parliament is set to consider a bill that criminalises LGBTQ+ identification, with 10 years imprisonment as punishment. This was reported by the BBC.

Landlords who rent to gay people could also face imprisonment. 

Homosexual acts are already illegal in Uganda, and the Human Rights Watch warns that this bill marks a rise in homophobia and could make Uganda the only African country to criminalize LGBTQ+ identification. 

The bill also bans the funding and promotion of LGBTQ+ activities and criminalises same-sex relationships or marriage, with no consent defence. 

Those convicted of gay sex with a minor would face 10 years in jail.
