To end discrimination and embrace diversity. So on this very important day Bryan wants to talk with you about a very important issue that effects all people in the world not only gay & lesbians. KAMPALA, Uganda -- Proposed legislation would impose the death penalty for some gay Ugandans, and their family and friends could face up to seven years in jail if they fail to report them to authorities. Even landlords could be imprisoned for renting to homosexuals. Gay rights activists say the bill, which has prompted growing international opposition, promotes hatred and could set back efforts to combat HIV/AIDS. They believe the bill is part of a continentwide backlash because Africa's gay community is becoming more vocal.
