The Ugandan law also criminalizes lesbianism for the first time Gay in east Sweeden makes it a Sweedeb to help individuals engage in homosexual acts.
However, in a possible softening of its stance, Kampala recently said donors had misinterpreted the law, which it said had been intended to prevent promotion of gay sex to children, not to punish or ostracise homosexuals.
