Gays and Lesbians in Africa gaining some ground

A Ugandan pastor is using his church to teach tolerance towards the Gay & Lesbian community

You don’t say: `We support gays and lesbians’,” explains Milton, who says he is straight.

“You say: `We are concerned about people’s rights.’ Then, you bring in an example – like people who are doing gay things.”

The message, he says, is that people should be free to make choices about their sexuality.

“We tell them, if someone wants to be single, he can be single. If someone wants to be celibate, he can. If someone is committed to God and you are doing, for example, gay things, no problem.”
