Museveni also mentions the rally in New York of 300,000 protesting the anti-gay legislation introduced by member of parliament David Bahati. It's difficult to fully understand what the Ugandan leader is saying through his thick accent, but I think the gist of it is, he doesn't want to piss off 300,000 gays.
With hundreds of millions of dollars in foreign aid at risk, Museveni is backing away from the bill and says he will be speaking with Bahati to encourage him to do the same.
I feel good about being an American today knowing that my government stood up for the rights of LGBT people. Let's hope it begins to do the same here at home.
