By Aarron Ainomugisha. Members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer/questioning, asexual-LGBTQIA+ community in Mbarara city and other parts of western Uganda have expressed worry as different local leaders gang up against them.

As Uganda awaits President Museveni’s final decision on signing or not signing the recently passed anti-homosexuality bill 2023 into law, several LGBTQIA+ sources/members contacted by RISE NEWS UGANDA network revealed that some political and religious leaders have been threatening to launch so called “name and shame” campaigns against them.

“It is a very sensitive situation. Even at my workplace, I suspect they’ll engage the Resident City Commissioner-RCC or any other authority about the reports that I am gay,” a source who preferred anonymity.

Besides the LGBTQIA+ people in Mbarara, there are others living in rural and urban areas across western Uganda – all facing similar threats countrywide.

Mbarara city is the biggest urban centre in western Uganda, with main routes to Tanzania, Rwanda and D R Congo.
