    Uganda’s parliament passed a bill on Friday that toughens punishment for homosexual acts, making it a crime worth life imprisonment in some cases. Not reporting gay people is also punishable by a prison sentence according to the bill. The bill has passed to the desk of President Yoweri Museveni, who likely knows that signing it into law will cause an international outcry, as world leaders have already condemned it. Uganda’s parliament also passed an Anti-Pornography bill on Thursday, which bans miniskirts and sexually suggestive material, including some music videos.
