Uganda, another East African country, makes it onto our list at number twelve, with one of the harshest environments for the LGBTI community. While some people in the country are actually pushing for harsher penalties against homosexual acts, right now you can face fourteen years in jail. Some cases amazingly result in lifetime sentences. With these already harsh sentences, activists against equal rights are actually pushing for a bill to impose harsher penalties, possibly even death sentences, to those caught in the act. The most heartbreaking thing about this, is that some countries have already passed laws like that into effect.
