The Ugandan Government Is Working On A Bill To Prevent LGBT People From Accessing Housing

Written by

Things could get even worse for the Ugandan LGBT community.

Before the repeal by a court of the anti-gay law which sentenced all homosexual relationships to prison, the government not only wants the law to be effective again, it currently works on a “Prohibition of the Promotion of Unnatural Sexual Practices Bill”, but it decided to further harden it, preventing LGBT people to have a home.

Indeed, this second law will criminalize any owner who “leases or subleases, uses or allows to be used any premises for the purpose of engaging in unnatural sexual practices” (meaning, of course, homosexual relationships).

Clearly, no one will be allowed to rent or sell property to LGBT people.

In case of violation, the person may be sentenced to 7 years in prison.

At present, gays and lesbians have been already evicted by owners and find themselves homeless.
