Members of the ex-gay community in Uganda want the anti-homosexuality law 2014 re-tabled in Parliament.
George Oundo, the chairperson of the ex-gay community in Uganda, on Monday, 27 May 2019 petitioned the Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, saying that the Bill will help create awareness about the sexual orientation.
“If this Bill is re-tabled, it will help expose the extent of the moral breakdown especially with the children and the youth. We aim at promoting moral and spiritual values since they are just recruited and not born as gays or lesbians,” Oundo said.
The ex-gay community requested for a meeting with the President to explain their experiences during the period they practiced homosexuality.
