Even if last month Uganda's president already refused to sign the bill, there is still a lot of concern on Museveni's views: his spokesman wanted people to know that in the president's opinion gay people are sick, they just don't deserve to be killed or jailed for life. "What the president has being saying is that we shall not persecute these homosexuals and lesbians. That is the point," Museveni's spokesman said. Gay stigmatization in Uganda is still a dramatic problem, the government condemns gay behaviour and furthermore the Uganda's parliament is still working on an anti-gay legislation. This will make you understand why we need international pressure on countries like Russia, Nigeria and Uganda that are trying to criminalize instead of enhance the conditions of homosexuals and their rights.
Being gay is a problem, especially for those who are not gay. Being gay is a social issue, even though it's about the private life of individuals. Being gay is very dangerous if you are born in the wrong country. President Obama is trying to change this situation and we hope that many others will join his efforts.
