Police in Uganda blocked an LGBT Pride Parade from taking place on Saturday.

More than 100 people turned up to participate in the event near Lake Victoria.

Simon Lokodo, Uganda's cabinet minister in charge of ethics and integrity, earlier in the week threatened organizers and participants with arrest.

LGBT rights activist Frank Mugisha told the AP that the police rounded up most attendees and escorted them back to Kampala in minibuses. He said that those people were later set free.

Several dozen activists made a second attempt to hold an event at another resort, which was also disrupted by police.

In August, police raided an LGBT event and arrested several prominent activists, prompting organizers to cancel a planned LGBT Pride Parade.

A colonial-era law makes homosexuality illegal in Uganda.

The government approved a law in 2014 that dramatically increased the penalties for those convicted of “aggravated homosexuality,” but a court later struck down the legislation.
