Uganda - Media should not publish

KAMPALA, Uganda -- Uganda's High Court has ruled that the media should not publish the names and photos of gay Ugandans following a vitriolic campaign which urged citizens to hang those featured.

Justice Kibuuka Musoke ordered Uganda's Rolling Stone magazine to pay $650 in damages and court costs for each of the three men who sued the magazine. The men were only three of 100 Ugandans listed in the magazine in October. They said they were attacked after they were identified as gay underneath a banner headline reading "Hang them."

Monday's ruling follows years of persecution of gay Ugandans. Homosexuality is illegal in Uganda but recently gay rights groups have begun protesting their treatment. Many Ugandans accuse gay men and women of recruiting children to a gay lifestyle, a charge activists reject as preposterous.
