Stephen Fry is supporting a new petition opposing Uganda’s new anti-gay law.
“If you haven’t, do think of signing this,” wrote the British star on Twitter. “Uganda, 1 of my favourite countries.”
According to the petition: "Gay Ugandans may be sentenced to death if legislation being debated right now passes.
“High level international condemnation has just pushed the President to send the bill for review, but Ugandan allies say only a worldwide outcry could tip Parliamentarians away from discrimination, alarming them with global isolation.
“We have just days left — sign the petition to oppose Uganda’s anti-gay law and send it on to friends and family and it will be delivered to Uganda’s politicians, donors and embassies around the world.”
