Kampala, Uganda

A Ugandan newspaper has been publishing the names of homosexual Ugandans in order, it says, to “rid our motherland of the deadly vice.” Over the last two months, Red Pepper has printed the first names of 45 men and 13 women. Several of those named have subsequently been arrested, while others have been kicked out of their homes. International human-rights groups, including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, have lodged protests, but to no avail. In Uganda, sex between two men or two women is illegal and can result in a lifetime prison sentence.
