Additional information
  • The article called for these people to be arrested and/or killed
  • The tabloid stated that the article was printed to make it easier for the authorities to find gay people since homosexuality is illegal in Uganda; we, however, believe that, at least in part, it was printed to give everyday citizens a license to attack gay people; it doesn't make sense to print it in a tabloid that can be viewed by any Ugandan citizen if it's only intended audience was law enforcement
  • This Rolling Stone magazine is NOT affiliated with the U.S. magazine of the same name!!!
