Uganda is one of the countries that criminalizes same sex relationships and homosexuality in general. Penal code Section 145,148 criminalize safe sex acts against the order of nature. Article 31 of the Ugandan constitution clause 2(a) prohibits same sex marriage. Equal opportunities Act 2009 is intended to broaden the criminalization of same sex relations by introducing the death penalty.
Already LGBT persons suffer from human rights violations because of their sexual orientation like denial of information about and treatment of HIV/AIDS, torture and ill treatment, sexual assault and rape, invasion of privacy, arbitrary detention, and denial of employment and education opportunities
Unfortunately LGBT people, MSM and MSWs students are not well versed with basic legal knowledge about human rights for all. To compound the problems stakeholders also lack credible knowledge about sexual minorities.
At Kampus Liberty Uganda we intend to bridge these gaps to protect our people.
