Yesterday, Uganda President Yowri Museveni criminalized being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). You can get 14 years in prison just for being LGBT. Life imprisonment awaits those convicted of “aggravated homosexuality.” Today, a newspaper “Exposed” the names of “Uganda’s 200 Top Homos.”

Museveni called gays “mercenaries” and “prostitutes.” He said, “There is something really wrong with you” if a man “fail[s] to be attracted to all these beautiful women.” Yeah, things in Uganda will only get worse.
