Uganda court strikes down anti-gay law

Gay rights activists in Uganda are cheering the decision by the country’s constitutional court to void a severe anti-gay law that had been passed earlier this year. But we still don’t think the time is right for gay travelers to go there — for example on one of the popular mountain gorilla safaris the country is known for. Anti-gay sentiment is huge there, and the law was only struck down on a technicality (rather than its horrific content) and, coincidentally, just before the Uganda president came to the U.S. for the African summit.
