SOME LGBT ACTIVISTS HOLD DEMONSTRATION AT THE UGANDAN EMBASSY

Some 3 to 4 members of the Kuchu Diaspora Alliance (KDA), a community of Ugandan LGBTQ people in the Diaspora, held a demonstration outside Uganda Embassy in Washington, D.C., calling on President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and Ugandan lawmakers to withdraw the Anti-Homosexuality Bill in its entirety. They asked President Yoweri Museveni to keep his promise that “gays should not be persecuted or killed”, and ensure that gays are treated humanely and are protected from discrimination.

Mukalazi Catherine wat is wrong with them pips? this is africa and we respect our cultural values. i really dnt know how some pipo wud feel if its ur son doing that to you that is if u have one at all. coz as far as i know, gays dnt have kids and spend the rest of their lives living in unhealthy life conditions like wearing pampers and having surgery al the time which shortens their life span.

Mandi Mbatha Its amazing how “God Fearing” people have so much hate in their hearts! Someone else being gay does not change the price of cheese so why all the hate? It saddens me that even women are part of this homophobic trend nje! Your God is surely not proud of you. You talk about knowing the bible, what happened to “Thou shall not judge?” If the God you serve is one that promotes death of others and hatred then shame! You can keep him. I will gladly go burn in hell! *AsYouWere*

Virginia Magwaza We Njinji No one is paid to be who they are and given the fact that there are people like you in this world if LGBTI people could decide to be who they are, they would definitely be what you want them to be just to spare their lives and protect themselves from such hate.

Mukalazi Catherine i know most gay humans are given money to do such crap but at the end of it all you are losing ur life and that money cannot rescue your life for long and you end up dying. God knew no man can handle having sexual intercourse from behind or else it wud have been clearly stated that man can marry a fellow man and have kids. if u want such immorality, keep urselves away from the normal pipo and dnt drag anyone to your hell. plus keep away from Africa and Uganda at large. we wont accept you here period

Wileng Beatrice GOD HAVE MERCY….God would have created MAN and MAN or WOMAN and WOMAN…BUT He found it wise to create MAN and WOMAN in His own image .., He said a MAN shall leave his father’s house and get joined to his wife….why DEMONSTRATE AGAINST GOD’S WORDS….Do you want ur children, grand children and your generation to live in sin and under a curse?

About the author

Veteran gay writer and speaker, Doug was one of the founders of the UKs pioneering GLBTI newspaper Gay News (1972) , and of the second, Gay Week, and is a former Features Editor of Him International. He presented news and current affairs on JOY 94.9 FM Melbourne for more than ten years. And now he's been nominated for LGBTI Journalist of the Year 2017, which is great news, as he hasn't won any of these things for years! If you want to nominate him too - the more the merrier - you can do it here http://www.australianlgbtiawards.com.au/public-nominations.html "Doug is revered, feared and reviled in equal quantities, at times dividing people with his journalistic wrath. Yet there is no doubt this grandpa-esque bear keeps everyone abreast of anything and everything LGBT across the globe." (Daniel Witthaus, "Beyond Priscilla", Clouds of Magellan, Melbourne, 2014)
