Judge blocks Ugandan tabloid anti-gay photos

CNN reports that a Ugandan judge has “temporarily ordered a tabloid in Uganda to stop publishing lists identifying people it claims are gay after an advocacy organization filed a lawsuit.”

The order came a day after Rolling Stone — which has no relation to the iconic U.S. music magazine — published a list of people it said were gay, urging readers to report them to police.

In the last edition, the newspaper promised to list 100 of what it called the country’s top gays. The first edition listed several gays and lesbians, with photos and addresses alongside a yellow banner reading “hang them.”
