    Ugandan legislators have re-introduced the dangerous Anti-Homosexuality Bill, a proposed law that would criminalize homosexuality in the country with extreme penalties. Under this proposed law, LGBT people could be killed or sentenced to life in prison, solely because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. As the bill’s author, David Bahati, has said, he believes the government of Uganda should “kill every last gay person.”

    Ask Citibank and Barclays to publicly condemn Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” bill, and send a loud message to Ugandan legislators that criminalizing homosexuality with lifetime prison sentences and the death penalty won’t be supported by major international businesses.

    Done ;)

    I hope this catches on and keeps people thinking. Investment banks are generally very welcoming to the LGBT crowd and if this gets loud enough, they'll have a good opportunity to win back some of society's respect given they have some clout over how the general direction of capital flows icon_razz.gif
