Lesbian and Gay Equality Project

With Ugandan MP David Bahati in Johannesburg this week, the Lesbian and Gay Equality Project is organising a protest against the politician, in memory of the murdered activist David Kato.

We as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and inter-sex people (LGBTI) activists salute the workers of South Africa as they celebrate 25 years of the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU).

Following the tabling of the Anti-Homosexuality Bill before the Ugandan Parliament that provides for imprisonment and the death penalty for infringements of the bill, civil society organisations in Africa are mobilising to persuade Ugandan parliamentarians to block this pernicious bill. The bill could become law during the course of this year. Organisations and prominent individuals are invited to endorse a statement as part of the campaign to block the bill.
