Tabloid prints list of homosexuals

KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) — A Ugandan tabloid has published a list of what it called the country’s “200 top” homosexuals the day after the country’s president signed a harsh anti-gay law.

The Red Pepper tabloid published the names — and some pictures — in a front-page story under the headline: “EXPOSED!”

The list included prominent Ugandan gay activists such as Pepe Julian Onziema, who has repeatedly warned that Uganda’s new anti-gay law could spark violence against homosexuals.

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni on Monday enacted the bill that punishes gay sex with up to life in jail — a measure criticized as draconian in a country where homosexuality already had been criminalized.
