Letter: Anti-gay law merits a warning

A Ugandan businesswoman who sells cereals counts Ugandan

While I enjoyed reading about Uganda's game parks in the Travel section, I was disappointed and even a little shocked that it didn't include a warning for gay and lesbian travelers ["A tall tale of adventure," Feb. 16].

Uganda is not the place for same-sex couples to take a honeymoon, unless they plan to spend the rest of the marriage in prison.

While large parts of Africa criminalize homosexuality, Uganda is increasing the penalties -- surely a note worth attaching to your travel article, along with warnings about shots and diseases.
