Ugandan newspaper again publishes list of gay men

A controversial newspaper has for the second time published photos, names and home addresses of gay Ugandans.



Kampala: A controversial newspaper has for the second time published photos, names and home addresses of gay Ugandans.
The paper`s managing editor, Giles Muhame, said today he plans to continue publishing photos of gay men to "help them live responsible lives."

A rights group is seeking an injunction to bar the paper from publishing faces of homosexuals in future editions.

Earlier this month the paper published a list of 100 gay Ugandans. Rights activists said the story prompted attacks against at least four people.

In October 2009 a lawmaker introduced a bill that would impose the death penalty for some homosexual acts and life in prison for others. The bill has not come up for a vote.
