    The good:
    Equatorial, beautiful, mountainous, jungle/forested, landlocked, mountain gorillas, mainly agricultural economy (coffee, bananas etc).

    The bad:
    Poverty, repercussions of the former genocide, the struggle to keep hunters away from the few remaining gorillas.

    LGBT rights

    Main article: LGBT rights in Rwanda
    Homosexuality is legal in Rwanda, although no specific laws regarding homosexuality exist.[98]
    On December 16, 2009, Rwanda discussed legislation that would criminalize homosexuality, proposing 5–10 years imprisonment.[99] This legislation is similar to the controversial Anti-Homosexuality Bill in the neighboring country of Uganda, which would penalize homosexuals with imprisonment and (in cases of relations with a minor or a disabled person, in cases where the offender is HIV-positive and in cases of repeated homosexual acts)[100] the death penalty. Uganda's bill would also penalize people with knowledge of individuals who are homosexual but do not report them.
