LGBT rights in Uganda

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) persons in Uganda have virtually no orientation-related protections at all. Both male and female homosexual activity is illegal. Prior to 2000, only male homosexuality was criminalized, then in 2000 under the Penal Code Amendment (Gender References) Act 2000 all references to "any male" was changed to "any person" so that lesbianism was criminalized as well.
