Gay rights group sues to have their name registered

A group of gay rights activists in Uganda have taken a government agency to court for refusing to register their organization. 

Homosexuality is illegal in the country, and violence against sexual minorities is rife. Deutsche Welle reports that Sexual Minorities Uganda lodged its case with the High Court after the Ugandan Registration Service Bureau knocked back the organization's attempt to register its name. The activists have been struggling since 2012 to register their organization - a step they say would guarantee certain benefits and obligations crucial to carrying out their work. They opted to sue after receiving a rejection letter from the registration bureau explaining that their chosen name, Sexual Minorities Uganda, was "undesirable and because homosexuals and same sex relations are illegal in Uganda, the bureau cannot legitimize an illegality."
