“The international pressure has worked! Uganda has abandoned the Kill the Gays bill, closing parliament in the face of an unprecedented global outcry. By adding your voice you’ve joined over 500,000 people around the world to send a powerful message that the Ugandan government could no longer afford to ignore.” ,…, “This is an important step, but the fight isn’t over yet – while we stopped the Kill the Gays bill from passing in this session of parliament, conservatives in Uganda are vowing to bring it back later this year.”
