Statement by President Clinton on Criminalization of Homosexuality in Uganda

New York, NY

I have been honored to work with and support the government and people of Uganda both when I was president and through the Clinton Foundation. But I am strongly opposed to its move to criminalize homosexuality. It is a setback for personal freedom and equal rights and a rebuke to Uganda's own commitment to protecting the human rights of its people. I want to salute and encourage the brave Ugandans committed to the fundamental dignity of all people and urge the government to reverse this decision.
