Quote of the day: Edwin Sesange, on Ugandan president’s trip to London

(As posted to my Gazette blog)

“It is hypocritical for the U.K. government to claim to be promoting LGBTI rights internationally and at the same time rolling out the red carpet for regimes like Uganda that persecute gay people.”
Edwin Sesange, the Ugandan director of the African LGBTI Out and Proud Diamond Group, in a statement following a demonstration staged outside a London hotel where Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni was speaking, as reported by Advocate.com.

Indeed, one has to wonder why the British government allowed Uganda’s president to enter the U.K. in light of the draconian anti-gay legislation Museveni signed into law in February.
