Excerpt: Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) persons in Uganda have virtually no sexual-orientation-related rights at all. Both male and female same-sex sexual activity are illegal in Uganda. Homosexuality is regarded as a taboo in Uganda (as it is in many other parts of Africa), a country whose LGBT population is estimated to be 500,000.
