The LGBT Catholic community in Westminster has mounted a campaign against the deportation of one of its Ugandan members, whom it says faces a very high risk of being killed if he is forced to return to the place of his birth. Godfrey Kawalya, a gay Ugandan refugee, LGBT campaigner and a member of LGBT Catholics Westminster, has been living in Britain since 2002. In Uganda, where same sex acts are illegal and punishable by life imprisonment, he says he was expelled from secondary school, sacked from his job and rejected by his family for being gay. He was also an active member of the political opposition to the current president, Yoweri Museveni.
