LGBT history in Uganda
Homosexuality in Uganda was criminalized in 1902. In February 2014, president Yoweri Museveni signed a new law, the Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Act, 2014, which provided for tougher penalties for gay people including criminalizing people who did not report them. The new law also covered lesbians for the first time. However, on 1 August 2014, the Constitutional Court of Uganda ruled the new law invalid.
