Revered LGBTI activist and speaker Terry Angel Mason is speaking out against one of the most heinous bills put into law:
Uganda’s Kill The Gays Bill.
Presented on October 14, 2009 by David Bahati , a member of Parliament, the bill allowed anyone who was gay to receive the death penalty or life imprisonment. The bill is now set to become law at the end of 2012. Terry Angel Mason, an international LGBTI activist, is creating massive awareness about the bill via Facebook and urges national and local leaders around the world to come together in prayer meetings to overturn the bill.
PRAYER INVITATION LINK:
According to Mason, “I believe that the time is now to act, especially on behalf of
the LGBT people in Uganda. This law is morally unjust and I will stop at nothing to support
Uganda’s LGBT communities. Being gay should never be a death sentence.”
Once in effect, Uganda’s Kill the Gays Bill will divide homosexuality into two categories; aggravated homosexuality and the offense of homosexuality. According to GayStarNews.Com, Aggravated homosexuality is defined as gay acts committed by parents or authority figures, HIV-positive people, pedophiles and repeat offenders. If convicted, they will face the death penalty. The offense of homosexuality includes same-sex sexual acts or being in a gay relationship, and will be prosecuted by life imprisonment.
An esteemed columnist, author and publisher, Mason has written numerous articles about the African LGBT crises. These include the following:
CHILDREN OF THE MOTHERLAND, I HEAR YOUR VOICES IN MY EARS!
Uganda, Uganda My Heart Weeps for You!
An Open Letter To the Architects of the Ugandan Gay Genocide
THE UGANDAN HOMOPHOBIC PLAGUE THAT HAS SPREAD AND INFESTED GHANA! JOIN THE INTERNATIONAL OUTCRY AGAINST HOMOPHOBIA!
I AM TRUTH!
“My goal with writing y articles is to spread the truth about what is going on in Africa and to create awareness so that action will be taken. Gays and lesbians are being beaten, tortured and are dying at record numbers. People in power in Uganda and other African countries are trying to demolish civil rights groups that promote equality and HIV/AIDS assistance. If they succeed, all people, not just gays and lesbians, would suffer and heterosexual and homosexual people with HIV or AIDS would die needlessly,” states Mason.
Mason plans to visit ST. Paul’s Voice Centre in Uganda in 2013 in an effort to raise money for the center, which advocates on behalf of the LGBT community.
