GPAM Statement on Ugandan LGBTQ+ Laws

The Global Pan African Movement denounces the Ugandan government and its criminalization of the LGBTQ+ community. On Tuesday, March 22, 2023, the Ugandan parliament introduced legislation that further puts queer people at risk of life imprisonment and the death penalty. The bills conflation of homosexuality with other sexual violations such as non-consensual sexual interactions, further institutionalizes the degradation of members of the LGBTQ+ community and their humanity.

In conceptualizing a 21st century Pan Africanism, we reaffirm our commitment towards advancing and defending the rights of all humans. We acknowledge the increasing oppression of LGBTQ+ communities, and denounce all attempts to use morality and religion to marginalize and oppress people. 

All Black Lives Matter.
