Although Ugandan member of Parliament David Bahati’s bill, commonly referred to as the “kill the gays” bill, failed two years ago, the homophobia that inspired it has festered and grown in Uganda, costing lives and livelihoods. And this past week, the bill came back. This week, we get the most up-to-date information on what’s going on in Uganda from Dr. Warren Throckmorton, an associate professor of Psychology at Grove City College and fellow for Psychology and Public Policy at the college’s Center for Vision and Values. Dr. Throckmorton explains what’s changed (or hasn’t changed) in Uganda since 2009, how international pressure might affect the bill’s chances and what lessons the international community can learn.
