Ugandan Soccer Chief Arrested After Gay Photo Gossip

smokedout-360x235News comes today of more human rights abuses in Uganda, where an anti-gay tabloid published graphic photos of the head of a national soccer team.

Last year, the evil Red Pepper tabloid ran photos of Chris Mubiru having sex with men … or at least, so they claimed. Details and facts were scant, and it’s unclear where the photos came from or if they’re real.

Mubiru fled the country for a bit, but police arrested him upon his return.

Now he’s officially been charged, and released on bond after paying about $30,000.

Conditions are still quite dire for LGBTs in Uganda. Antiquated colonial laws and misinformation have led to widespread abuse, from harassment to torture to murder. A pending bill would go even further, strengthening punishments for gay men.

Edwin Sesange, director of African LGBTI Out & Proud Diamond Group is pleading for regional leaders to join a campaign to educate the public and repeal these laws. They have their work cut out for them if all it takes to ruin a man’s life is a couple of sketchy photos in a gossip magazine.

      Why hasn’t the American black community said anything about this? The NAACP, for instance.

      Memo to American blacks: your silence is deafening. It’s as if you agree with Uganda’s laws.

      THANK YOU!

      The hom0ph0bic, misogynistic, self-loathing troll known as “jimbryant” is on here to provoke and throw every comment thread off kilter. We should generally ignore him, except when we have to school him/it, as you just perfectly did.

      Thank you again!

      @Scribe38: I third that in thanking you for posting that. This is the second time within a week or two that @Jimbryant: has accused Black leadership of not responding, only to be proven wrong. And then he does what he always do. Crawl back into his little hole like a rat. Strange how this guy is up in the asses of Black leadership trying to find fault. And when good is done, you don’t hear sh# t from him.
