This Thursday, January 15, Europe will vote on whether to denounce a new anti-gay bill advancing in Kyrgyzstan. If passed, anyone could be thrown in jail for saying something deemed “too gay”. Now a Kyrgyz politician even called for all gay and lesbian people to be publicly executed.
Europe gives hundreds of millions in development funding to Kyrgyzstan. If the EU protests the anti-gay law, politicians in Kyrgyzstan will take note. This could be enough to stop the law.
The vote is in just one day and a key member of the European Parliament has agreed to deliver our petition to the Parliament just before the vote. Sign to call on Europe to denounce this new anti-gay bill.
