Updated: Ugandan newspaper ordered to stop outing gay men – November 1, 2010 – Pink News

Ugandan newspaper Rolling Stone has been ordered to stop outing gay men and lesbians.

The publication, no relation to the US magazine, began publishing the names of gays and lesbians last month. In a previous issue, it carried a banner stating that the individuals should be hanged.

Today, a High Court judge granted a request from Sexual Minorities Uganda for the newspaper to stop outing gay people.

Rolling Stone’s editor Giles Muhame told AFP he intended to continue his campaign against homosexuality.

The newspaper’s latest list contains the photos of 14 men said to be gay, plus their towns and intimate physical details about them. It calls them the “generals” of the gay rights movement.
