Many a gay blog was up in arms last year about Uganda’s proposed hateful Kill The Gays Bill, which could punish those accused of homosexual acts with the death penalty. Well, it’s back. And it could become law as early as Tuesday.

A vote is expected to happen in the early half of this week. While we are sitting pretty here in America arguing for our right to marry, Uganda’s LGBT citizens are wondering if they might be killed with the passage of this bill.

We just learned the “kill the gays” bill – a death sentence for LGBT people in Uganda – could come up for a vote in the next 72 hours if we don’t act now.

Conservative leaders are trying hard to push the bill forward before the millions like us who oppose it have a chance to speak out.  If we can create a massive international outcry, theres a chance to stop this bill from becoming law.
This hateful bill appears to be a political diversion, a way to distract from the legitimate grievances of pro-democracy activists, who have been beaten, teargassed, jailed, and even killed in recent weeks.
There are only days left to make sure your voice is heard.  Will you join me in demanding the Ugandan President Musevini veto the “Kill The Gays” bill should it be passed in Parliament?  Sign and share this urgent petition:

Please, please, one thousand times please, take a moment to add your name to the growing petition of international citizens speaking out against this travesty of a bill. It will take you less than a minute, but it could save countless lives. Be a hero. Sign the petition.
