Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has officially signed one of the world’s toughest anti-LGBTQ+ laws, drawing criticism and threats of sanctions from countries around the world.

Among it’s rulings, the Anti-Homosexuality Act includes the death penalty for “aggravated homosexuality” and a 20-year sentence for “promoting” homosexuality.

Originally passed on 21 March, the bill was then returned to Parliament by Museveni who demanded that it be made even harsher.

On 29 May, Museveni then signed the final version of the bill into law. Homosexuality and same-sex relations were already illegal in Uganda, but the new Anti-Homosexuality Act sets a precedent for anti-LGBTQ+ legislation in the country.
