It is a subject that does not receive a great deal of attention, which I suppose is both a curse and a blessing.
I support asylum for anyone who would be hurt, imprisoned, killed or generally abused in there place of origin over things like this.
I'm not surprised by the statement the Ugandan official said.

I cant believe that homosexuality is illegal in Uganda.
Homosexuality is illegal in most of Africa, the middle-east, central
Eurasia and a few places in Asia and central America as well as more
than a few Caribbean countries that most people have heard of, notably
Jamaica, where there is regular murder of homosexual people, while
the police force ignore it.
I know that here in the U.S. we have our own problems with some states having strict anti-sodomy laws but these people are ridiculous.
While there are sodomy laws that are technically still on the books
in some states, they can not legally enforce them.
