BISHOP SENYONJO TO VISIT WHITE HOUSE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 8, 2010
WASHINGTON DC: Bishop Christopher Senyojo--a courageous spokesperson for the equality of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons in his native Uganda--is scheduled to visit the White House this evening. He will be accompanied by the Rt. Rev. Gene Robinson, the Bishop of New Hampshire, and others. They will meet with Denis McDonough, Samantha Powers, and other foreign policy officials of President Obama's administration. Bishop Senyonjo is expected to share his grave concerns about the "kill the gays bill" currently being considered by the Ugandan Parliament.
At the invitation of Integrity USA, Bishop Senyonjo has been touring the United States during the past month to raise awareness about Uganda's proposed "Anti-Homosexuality Bill" and the severe criminal penalties LGBT people face in Uganda. Over the past four week he has spoken to hundreds of concerned Americans in Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento, San Francisco, Minneapolis, New York, and Washington DC.
