February 23, 2011 - Kampala, Uganda - Portrait of Eric (the name he choosed to protect his identity), 22, a closeted muslim homosexual in his bedroom. Uganda's gay population now face renewed suppression in a country where homosexual acts already carry a punishment of 14 year's jail. Some religious and political leaders are pushing for the death penalty for people who have gay sex with disabled people, under-18s, or while being HIV positive. David Bahati's Anti-Homosexuality Bill was tabled in Ugandan Parliament on October 2009, and is currently before the Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee of Parliament.
