In an address to parliament, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni blasted western nations for imposing the LGBT agenda on his country.
The president of Uganda on Thursday pushed back against the global promotion of the LGBT agenda by western nations, saying the west “should stop wasting the time of humanity by imposing their social practices on us.”
Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni made the remarks during an address to parliament, in which he strayed from expected talking points to address the cultural imperialism of the LGBT-promoting west.
“The western countries should stop wasting the time of humanity by imposing their social practices on us,” President Museveni said. “Sex is confidential, so why should the public know whether you are a homosexual or not unless you pronounce yourself?”
Noting that “[h]omosexuals are deviations from normal,” Museveni appeared to call for more research into whether homosexuality arises from “nature or by nurture.”

Homosexual actions are against the law in Uganda under a rarely enforced section of the country’s penal code. Late last month, an MP introduced a new version of an “anti-homosexuality” bill modeled after a similar law in 2014 that was struck down in court.
If passed, the measure would make it against the law not only to engage in homosexual actions, but even to identify “as a lesbian, gay, transgender, a queer, or any other sexual or gender identity that is contrary to the binary categories of male and female.”
According to a recently conducted study, gender-confused teens committed suicide after taking trans hormones from researchers.
