The young Queer, Questioning LGBT Ugandan and the Anti-Homosexuality Act, 2023


Cry, young LGBT Ugandans.

I really feel pity for them. Growing up in a country that makes homophobia a normal practice, that has in hand a law to imprison (for life) and kill off homosexual Ugandans.

These are the brutal facts. Young, especially teenaged LGBT Ugandan.

If you are ever caught having sex with another person, any other person of the same sex, you are also at risk.

First of all, who is a ‘child’? The Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Act 2023 defines.


Part 1—Preliminary


“child” means a person below the age of eighteen years;”


That gives the child a bit of protection. But, it is not absolute, not complete. Uganda imprisons her children, those starved to death, in a remand home.

If you, child, shows signs of homosexuality; you are at more risk. Bitter truth. Learn it. Understand.


Part 2

1.  Punishment for Child offender

A child who is convicted of an offence under section 2 or 3 of this Act shall, instead of the punishment prescribed under the relevant section, be liable, on conviction, for a period not exceeding three years.


Yes, someone under 18 years of age, a child will be imprisoned in Uganda, for having homosexual sex.

In practice, this  will target you, curious teen. It doesn’t matter if you don’t really understand the politics. it doesn’t matter that you are simply curious about sex. it doesn’t matter that it is your first time. You will be imprisoned. At that age that you are.

In practice, when the person you are caught having sex with is younger than 18, this is what is going to happen. More than likely, both of you might be imprisoned.

If the person you are caught with is older than 18, well, they might get the Death Penalty, for having sex with you. That is what the law, the Anti-Homosexuality Act of Uganda, 2023 states.

Oh, the offences you are accused of; Homosexuality, and Attempted Homosexuality. And these are very meticulously, thoroughly defined in the law, the Anti-Homosexuality Act 2023.
