A Church that does not view homosexuality as sin, and affirms the full inclusion of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender persons (LGBT) in ministry has been launched in Uganda. Sexual Minorities Uganda, a non-government organization that advocates for the protection and promotion of human rights for LGBT Ugandans on 23 December confirmed the grand opening officiated by Bishop Joseph W. Tolton, the Executive Director of The Fellowship Global based in Oakland, California – USA. The organization is positioned to be a catalyst for a pan-African faith movement, connecting the radically inclusive Christian movement led by African Americans and their allies to communities in Africa and throughout the diaspora.
