ONE MAN’S JOURNEY TO AVERTING RELIGIOUS BIGOTRY IN UGANDA

PROFILEE: Samson Turinawe

PROFESSION:  Evangelism (Pastor and Director Universal Love Ministries)

MISSION: Working towards acceptance and inclusion of LGBT persons

TURNING POINT: Having the church I ministered in (2006) strongly discriminate and castigate persons alleged to be LGBT or sex workers. My conscience could not take people who were seeking the righteousness of God being turned away from the very places where they should have found comfort

WHAT DOE UNIVERSAL LOVE MINISTRIES DO?: Sensitizing religious leaders about gender identity and sexual orientation, sexuality, human rights as well as spirituality in relation to all these

IS HOMOSEXUALITY UNAFRICAN?:  The notion of homosexuality being evil was brought to Africa by colonialists. I had always been part and parcel of our culture and history has greatly proven this

LAST WORD: Whatever your gender identity or sexuality orientation, you are a child of God and you are dearly loved and ACCEPTED by Him
