legality
In most of the world it is legal to be gay and to have gay sex. In Indonesia and Russia, it is legal with limitations. In Russia you may not advocate for gay rights. In much of Africa, being gay is punishable with prison. In Uganda, at the urging of American fundamentalist Christians, being gay is a capital crime and it also illegal to know a gay person and refrain from reporting them to the police. Uganda has effectively a witchcraft law that can be used to accuse anyone. Thought crimes need no evidence. This is a throwback to middle age Christian superstition.
