UK Government hosts Ugandan President for a Buisness Forum as the first anti-gay trial begins...
Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni, who believes gay people are “disgusting”, has spoken at a Business Forum hosted by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) at Lancaster House in London.
Around a dozen gay rights activists, led by veteran campaign Peter Tatchell, held a protest outside the forum.
“Gay people are not the cause of Uganda’s problems," Tatchell said. "The government of Uganda should fight poverty and HIV, not gay people."
"It is hypocritical for the UK government to condemn homophobia while hosting President Museveni, who has backed one of the world’s most draconian anti-gay laws.
