Abstract

Uganda resurfaced in the global headlines at the tail end of 2009, when the Anti-Homosexuality Bill 2009, which appears to be supported by most Ugandans, was tabled before Parliament. This paper probes homophobia in Uganda and addresses the theme of "sexuality", justice and the concomitant implications for forced migration. It looks at the analysis of the bill in relation to the issue of human rights. Methodologically, it briefly focuses on addressing the socio-cultural aspects in respect of Afro-societal aversion to homosexuality and legislative change.
