Kom ons help ‘n bietjie. Gay Uganda Genocide

Dear friends,

Uganda’s parliament is preparing to pass a brutal new law that would punish gay people with prison — even death.

Initial international criticism drove the President to call for a review. But after a well-funded and vicious lobbying effort by extremists, the bill looks set to be passed — threatening widespread persecution and bloodshed.

Opposition to the bill is rising, including from the Anglican church. Ugandan gay rights advocate Frank Mugisha writes, “This law will put us in serious danger. Please, sign the petition and tell others to stand with us – if there’s a huge global response, our government will see that Uganda will be internationally isolated by the proposed law, and strike it down.”

With the decision expected in days, only an irresistible wave of worldwide pressure will be enough to save Frank’s life and many others. Let’s build a huge petition to stop the gay death law — click here to take action, then forward this email:

The petition will be delivered to President Museveni, members of the review committee and Ugandan embassies worldwide this week before it’s too late, as well as to key donor governments.

The bill proposes life imprisonment for anyone convicted of having same-sex relations and imposes the death penalty for “serial offenders”. NGOs working to prevent the spread of HIV could be imprisoned for up to 7 years for “promoting homosexuality”. Even members of the public face up to three years in jail if they fail to report homosexual activity to the police within 24 hours!

The bill’s advocates claim that it defends national culture, but its strongest critics come from within Uganda. The Reverend Canon Gideon Byamugisha is one of many who’s written to us – he says,

“It is violating our cultures, traditions and religious values that teach against intolerance, injustice, hatred and violence. We need laws to protect people — not ones that will humiliate, ridicule, persecute and kill them en masse.”

By rejecting this dangerous bill and supporting the breadth of opposition to it, we can help set a crucial precedent. Let’s build massive support for Uganda’s human rights defenders, and save lives by stopping this bill — sign now here, then tell friends and family:

With hope and determination,

Alice, Ricken, Ben, Paul, Benjamin, Pascal, Raluca, Graziela and the whole Avaaz team

Ek vra hulp asb.

Ek sal baie graag ‘n blogroll wil maak van blogs wat handel oor gay-wees of geskryf is deur gay-mense. Mans en vrouens. Indien julle so gaaf sal wees om die links vir my hier te los sal ek baie dankbaar wees.

Die rede hoekom ek dit wil doen is omdat ek baie vriende het wat van facebook af lees, en hulle sê dat hulle sukkel om gay leestof in Afrikaans  op die net op te spoor omdat ons nie altyd ‘n gay tema gebruik vir ons skrywes nie.

Ek hoop nou nie ek trap op iemand se tone nie, ek het net gedink dit sal help.

So, nou is ek getroud :)

Wel, ek glo vandag dat daar met goeie rede, en baie wysheid, deur onse Hemelse Vader deurgegee is dat ons net een keer moet trou, en so moet bly. Trou is nie vir sussies nie, en ‘n bitch op die senuwees. Lees aan ‘So, nou is ek getroud :)’

Daar’s ‘n Gay Pastoor in my kop.

“Die kontroversiële saak van homoseksualiteit in die kerk vorm die kern van die boek. Die outeur het aanvanklik geweier om sy homoseksualiteit te aanvaar en was uiteindelik oortuig dat dit slegs ‘n duiwel is wat uitgedryf moet word. As jongman ontmoet hy ‘n vrou met wie hy later trou, hy word pa en ook ‘ suksesvolle AGS Pastoor in Johannesburg. Maar as mens bly hy ontevrede en onvervuld. Die hart van die storie dui hoe sy vrou van hom skei, hy uiteindelik sy homoseksualiteit aanvaar en vrede en geluk vind in sy verhouding met Johan. Lees aan ‘Daar’s ‘n Gay Pastoor in my kop.’


Vind uit as ek iets nuuts kwytraak. Dit is natuurlik gratis.

Dis wie ek is:

Ek is ‘n Afrikaner man, ek is gay, en ek is 29 jaar oud. Ek skryf die blog, om uiting te gee aan my taal en my kultuur, ten spyte van die feit dat baie mense dink n gay man is minder man. Ek is lief vir my land, my mense, my taal en ons kos. Ek is lief vir my God. Ek glo ek is wie ek is as gevolg van die oorloë van my voorvaders. My kultuur het my identiteit gevorm. Braaivleis is in my bloed, en ek kan net waarlik gelukkig wees onder die Afrika son.
