Peter Thatchell Speaks Out

Whilst business tycoon Richard Branson is busy telling people not to enter Uganda, British rights campaigner Peter Thatchell is urging not to let the homophobes out.

Governments around the world should impose a travel ban and assets freeze on the key movers of the new homophobic legislation: Yoweri Museveni, Rebecca Kadaga, David Bahati, Simon Lokodo, Martin Sempa, Solomon Male and Scott Lively. They are implicated in stirring homophobic hatred, which has coincided with an escalation of threats and mob violence against LGBT Ugandans.

We're glad he included Scott Lively in that, as we're completely at a loss as to why he's allowed to keep jetting around the world inciting hatred whilst awaiting trial in the US.

[UPDATE: Cyclist Graeme Obree has also called on a travel ban for Uganda's anti-gay politicians to the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.]
