IN SHORT: Gay rights are controversial in Uganda, where homosexuality is outlawed. An image that seems to show a popular opposition leader in the country supporting LGBTQI rights has been altered. An image doing the rounds on Facebook shows Ugandan opposition leader Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine, standing in front of a banner that seemingly promotes LGBTQI rights in Africa. LGBTQI stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex. The banner reads: “#HomosexualRights #with Africa I SUPPORT LGBTQ RIGHTS www.withafrica.eu LGBT.” It shows a map of Africa and the distinctive colours of the pride flag – as well as the logo of the National Unity Platform (NUP), the political party Wine leads.
