Petition for Gays in Uganda

To be gay in Uganda means the possibility of being imprisoned and/or sentenced to death if a new legislation currently being debated is passed.

The proposed new bill also threatens up to three years in prison for anyone failing to report the identities of any gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered individuals within 24 hrs.

This Avaaz petition (which I just got via email) is for those who wish to sign against this insanity.

On the petition site, look at the number counter below the photo of "Frank". It's amazing to see the numbers climbing rapidly by the second as people sign.
