Scientists Urge Ugandan President to Reject Bill Criminalizing Homosexuality

Fifteen prominent scientists and academics from around the world have issued an open letter to Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, urging him to reject a new bill that would criminalize homosexuality in the country.

The Anti Homosexuality Bill 2023, which proposes life imprisonment for LGBTQ+ individuals and the death penalty for “aggravated homosexuality,” is set to be signed into law or vetoed by Museveni on Thursday.

In the letter, the group asserts that homosexuality is a natural and normal variation of human sexuality, with clear genetic origins.

They call on Museveni to veto the bill in the name of science, stating that it reflects state-sponsored homophobia that is un-African and contrary to the principles of Ubuntu.

The scientists argue that homosexuality cannot be caught like a common cold, nor can it be indoctrinated, and that exposure to rainbow flags will not make a child gay.
