"This inflammatory bill will be taken as further confirmation that it is O.K. to attack or even kill people perceived to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender."
- Victor Mukasa, of the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission.

DEAR PRESIDENT OBAMA: The unprecedented "Anti-Homosexuality Bill" being considered by Uganda's parliament would make homosexuality a crime punishable by death in some instances and by life imprisonment in many others.

We urge you and your administration to use all diplomatic and economic means necessary — including the revocation of Uganda's special trade beneficiary status under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (what's this?) — to compel the Ugandan government to unequivocally reject the Anti-Homosexuality Bill. The U.S. cannot sit by as Ugandan politicians attempt to enact a law that would violate international human rights and put Uganda's LGBT community on a path towards genocide.

If ever there was a time for the full force and power of the Presidency, this is it.
The lives of Uganda's LGBT citizens are — all too literally — hanging in the balance.
Your forthright leadership is needed now.

President Obama, we are waiting.
