Judge: Uganda’s Rolling Stone Barred From Printing Gay Hit Lists

Uganda’s Rolling Stone newspaper, which printed a handy guide to the country’s homosexuals that readers needed to “hang,” has been banned from further publishing the names, photographs, and home addresses of gay men and women, because doing so violates citizens’ constitutional right to privacy. Judge Vincent Musoke-Kibuuke issued a permanent injunction against college student and editor Giles Muhame’s disgusting front page features, and ordered the paper to pay about USD$650 to the plaintiffs from Sexual Minorities Uganda and cover their court costs and legal fees. Maybe one day Mr. Muhame will live in a world where being gay doesn’t mean people will call for your execution, and he’ll be able to print all the gay names he wants.
