Uganda president calls gays ‘disgusting’ in interview after signing anti-gay law

Just hours after signing a harsh anti-gay law that punishes gay sex with up to life in prison, Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni called gays “disgusting” in an interview with CNN.

Asked if he personally dislikes homosexuals, Museveni replied:

“Of course. They are disgusting. What sort of people are they? I never knew what they were doing. I’ve been told recently that what they do is terrible. Disgusting. But I was ready to ignore that if there was proof that that’s how he is born, abnormal. But now the proof is not there.”


The White House said Monday the United States is reviewing its relationship with Uganda because of the African nation’s new anti-gay law.
