monica mbaruIGLHRC’s Monica Mbaru was interviewed by Afronline (http://www.afronline.org) about LGBT community in Uganda and Africa.

Excerpt:

Where does this idea of homosexuality as a Western concept come from?

When politicians want to derail or take people’s attention away from a problem to another one, when they just don’t want to take responsibility or when it is convenient to push the idea that something is not African. And this is the routine. Let’s take corruption: it is not Western or African, it is a human thing, a human behaviour.
