Translated from Dutch NOS TV:
Ugandan police stops Gay Pride
The Ugandan police has stopped a Gay Pride planned for today. According to a government spokesman, the Gay Pride is illegal.
At two places in Uganda celebrations were planned. A hundred gay, lesbian and transgender people came to a beach at Lake Victoria. They were all arrested, but were released later. According to a gay rights activist the arrests “traumatized” the people.
Homosexuality is illegal in Uganda. In 2013, the Ugandan parliament passed a law which introduced life imprisonment for homosexuality. The Supreme Court declared the law null and void.
