This is an encouraging step but there is a long road ahead for Ugandan LGBT human rights defenders. The Act was declared invalid because the Ugandan Parliament did not follow the right procedures when they passed it, the Court did not make any decision on whether the content of the Law violates the constitution. Anti-gay politicians and religious leaders are already planning to revive the Act. It is likely that they will re-introduce it to Parliament and this time they will make sure the proper procedures are followed. It is also important to remember that under pre-existing laws it is still illegal to be gay in Uganda.
