Bill Doesn't Need to Pass to be Imposed

Excellent interview from LGBT Weekly.

It brings to light the problem that has been building since the bill was introduced in 2009, that the Anti-Gay Bill does not need to pass for people to use it as an excuse to attack LGBTI people.

As we already know, it leads to people living in fear, being attacked in the street, and being denied health care. Yet there is a sense that so long as Museveni doesn't assent the bill, LGBTI people are safe. This is not the case. The fact that the bill is even on the table gives the green light to all manner of human rights violations, as highlighted in the above video.
