STATEMENT BY JEN PSAKI, SPOKESPERSON

U.S. Concern with Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality Legislation

state departmentWe are deeply concerned by the Ugandan Parliament’s passage of anti-homosexuality legislation.  As Americans, we believe that people everywhere deserve to live in freedom and equality – and that no one should face violence or discrimination for who they are or whom they love.  We join those in Uganda and around the world who appeal for respect for the human rights of LGBT persons and of all persons.
