The Ugandan parliament passed the Anti-Homosexuality Bill into law on 14 February 2014. The Bill criminalised any sexual acts and relations between people of the same sex. The maximum sentence for such offences would be the death penalty or life imprisonment. In the few years leading to the signing of the Bill into law, although the language used in the Bill refers to “gays” and “homosexuals”, the prospect and the eventual implementation of the Bill also impacted trans and intersex people. The Bill was first introduced to Parliament in 2009
