    Uganda newspaper publishes 'gay list,' calls for their hanging
    By Faith Karimi, CNN
    October 20, 2010 -- Updated 1853 GMT (0253 HKT)

    A Ugandan newspaper published a story featuring a list of the nation's "top" gays and lesbians with their photos and addresses, angering activists who say the already marginalized group risks facing further attacks.

    Earlier this month, Rolling Stone newspaper -- not affiliated with the U.S. magazine with the same name -- featured 100 pictures of Uganda's gays and lesbians. Next to the list was a yellow strip with the words "hang them."

    Gay Ugandan King Proves that Homosexuality is African

    King Mwanga II was widely reported to engage in homosexual relations before the British invasion.


    Ugandan King Mwanga II was widely reported to have engaged in sexual relations with his male subjects, according to the report by NGO Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG) "Expanded Criminalisation of Homosexuality in Uganda: A Flawed Narrative".

    Ugandan martyrs were burnt to death between 1885 and 1887 on the orders of Mwanga II, for denying him gay sex when they converted to Christianity.

    The SMUG's report is a response to the anti-gay bill proposal passed in Ugandan parliament in 2009, and is aimed to prove that same sex relationships existed throughout Africa, including the territories that now form Uganda, before the colonisation.

    Not sure if there was an agenda behind these articles, but was more interested in the validity of what was written.
