Kampala, Uganda (CNN) — The editor of a tabloid in Uganda who argues that homosexuality is more dangerous than smoking, has published a list of 10 gay and lesbian people in the African nation, urging readers to report them to the police.

It’s the second time that Rolling Stone — no relation to the iconic U.S. music magazine — has published such a list.

Last time it listed 100 of what it called the country’s top gays and lesbians, with photos and addresses alongside a yellow banner reading “hang them.”

Gay rights groups in Uganda say at least four people have been attacked since then.

And a bill that would make homosexuality potentially punishable by death is working its way through Uganda’s parliament.

The new gay list includes addresses and alleged intimate details about the anatomy of people on it.

Editor Giles Muhame, 22, has discouraged readers to physically attack people on the list, but he claims gay people are going to schools and “recruiting” schoolchildren.
