Gambian President Signs Bill to Lock up Gays for Life

Written by scott on November 21st, 2014

Gambia - Apple MapsAfrica took another huge step backwards on LGBT rights this week.

Pink News reports:

The president of Gambia has signed into law a bill which calls for life imprisonment for people caught having gay sex. The law was passed by the National Assembly in September, and amends the criminal code to bring life sentences for “aggravated homosexuality.” The Associated Press reports that a draft bill contains identical language to Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Act, which was signed into law earlier this year.

I guess it’s easier to scapegoat the LGBT community than to deal with the real problems afflicting your country.
