|The international pressure has worked! Uganda has abandoned the Kill the Gays bill, closing parliament in the face of an unprecedented global outcry. By adding our voices we’ve joined over 500,000 people around the world to send a powerful message that the Ugandan government could no longer afford to ignore.Thank you.
This is an important step, but the fight isnt over yet – while we stopped the Kill the Gays bill from passing in this session of parliament, conservatives in Uganda are vowing to bring it back later this year.
But the tables have begun to turn. Together we’re a movement of more than half a million people ready to ensure hundreds of thousands of Ugandans and others around the world are able to live their lives without fear.
