On May 10, 2010, Bishop Senyonjo commenced a U.S. speaking tour to denounce worldwide homophobia and Uganda's 'anti-homosexuality bill', which could lead to Senyonjo's arrest for his support of the LGBT community. Bishop Christopher has paid a high price for his consistent advocacy for LGBT persons. In 2006, he was stripped of all church responsibilities and financial support and he is no longer recognized as a bishop in the Anglican Church of Uganda. Instead of bowing to church intimidation, his courageous response has been to speak out even more strongly for the human rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people as the tide of persecution in Uganda is rising.
Watch Bishop Senyonjo, hear his story, and help fight to end the very active 'kill the gays' movement.
