Uganda: The Constitutional Court declares the Anti-Homosexuality Act 2014 void
A panel of five judges ruled on 1 August 2014 that the Speaker of Parliament acted illegally when she allowed a vote despite objections that not enough MPs were in attendance.
Criminalising Homosexuality is a Breach of Human Rights
As of 2014, over 80 jurisdictions – including about 80% of the 53 Commonwealth countries – have laws criminalising private, consensual sexual conduct between adults of the same sex, making the expression of their identity illegal and punishable by imprisonment or even death.
Legal cases supported by the Human Dignity Trust
The Human Dignity Trust provides technical legal support in court cases around the world, where local litigants are seeking to challenge laws that criminalise – or impose other administrative penalties based on - sexual identity.
