A controversial bill that will allow the Ugandan government to imprison or execute members of the LGBT community is being forced through their Parliament. Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Ugandans as well as those who will be accused of being members of the LGBT community could face life in prison or a death sentence for who they are. This can't be allowed to happen and I am asking you to help them and make some noise.
I have compiled a list below of influential people contacts that can help us. Please be respectful and polite but let them know just how strongly you feel and how badly this needs to be stopped. Don't let them do nothing. Whilst it is unlikely that one voice can do much, a thousand voices can sound pretty loud. We must stand in solidarity with the LGBT people of Uganda and show their leaders that we will not bear witness to a possible genocide.
The UK Foreign Office
UK Prime Minister's Office
UK Dep. Prime Minister's Office
UK High Commission in Uganda
Dept. of the Taoiseach
Irish Dept for Foreign Affairs
Irish Embassy to Uganda
Whilst by no means is this list exhaustive, it is a start. If you have any other avenues to lobby on behalf of the Ugandan LGBT community please leave a comment or contact me at Stephendonnan88@gmail.com or on Twitter @SteveDonnan.
Together we can be heard and make a difference.
