Uganda Court Ruling Step Forward For LGBT Community

Devex: Court ruling over anti-gay law ‘fragile gain’ for anti-HIV aid in Uganda
“There were ‘tears, dancing, and celebration’ in Uganda on Friday after the Supreme Court declared null and void the country’s anti-homosexuality law, giving LGBT activists and civil society groups respite from a long battle over Ugandans’ human rights and their freedom to access anti-HIV treatment without fear of prosecution. … But the fight for gay rights is far from over in Uganda…” (Ravelo, 8/4).
