InterPride (Association international organizers of pride LGBT) is deeply opposed, and condemns the draft law against the homosexualityalso known as "Bill that kills gays", that they say would be adopted at the end of 2012. This legislation will ensure that homosexuals should be treated them as dangerous criminals, and includes, not limited to the penalty of death, but also to those that are suspected of being "gay", as well as those living with HIV.The co-President of InterPride, Caryl Dolinko, says "we are stunned and disappointed that a law that shows much hatred can be potentially voted today. In InterPride, we work for equality, dignity and human rights of the LGBTI rights, our organizations and our members are dismayed with Ugandan politicians, above all of that is embodied this outdated and abhorrent "."The draft law against the homosexualityIt was introduced by David Bahati, a member of Uganda's Parliament, and a member of "'The Family ', (an influential fundamentalist Christian and Evangelical politics) in October 2009 as Bill and today only is waiting to be approved by the parliamentary.The President of the Uganda's Parliament Rebecca Kadaga, said that lawmakers will be approving the law against homosexuals before the end of this year while some Christian clergymen in Kampala, capital of Uganda, have approved the law, declaring that it will be "a Christmas gift".

"It is very clear that the proposal for Uganda anti-gay, is in conflict with the International Declaration of human rights and the principles of Yogyakarta which seeks to apply international standards of human rights for LGBTI people. InterPride is committed to promote to the members to communicate with their respective national Governments, to ask that this kind of hatred can not be tolerated by the international community. "We ask that the global LGBTI community, as well as all people who believe in the protection of human dignity and rights ask the join us against the rejection, persecution and the well-established defense and universally acorda on human rights standards", says Gary Van Horn, InterPride co-Chair.

InterPride, the International Association of organizers of the pride LGBTI aims to increase the capacity of our network of pride LGBTI organizations around the world to raise awareness of cultural, social and legal inequalities and to achieve positive change through education, cooperation, promotion and dissemination.
