San Francisco Pride Announces Ugandan Bishop Christopher Senyonjo as Global Grand Marshal

Watch our Video Interview where Bishop Christopher talks about Desmond Tutu and the exporting of Hate by American Evangelicals to Africa

By Melanie Nathan, June, 09, 2012.

The Rt. Rev. Bishop Disani Christopher Senyonjo is on tour of the U.S.A. and will be this year’s Global Grand Marshall, as San Francisco Pride recognizes the contributions made by the Bishop to LGBTI people in Uganda, Africa and globally.

The work of Bishop Christopher Senyonjo, a retired Anglican Bishop from the Diocese of Western Uganda, has become increasingly vital over time, heightened by the intensifying persecution of homosexuals in his country. Taking the courageous step of ministering to LGBT people in his country, the Bishop is calling on America to “stop exporting hatred” as he continues to advocate for the global decriminalization of homosexuality.    

It is a well known fact that Christian Evangelicals from the United States of America have planned, funded and implemented a direct attack on homosexuality in Uganda, citing biblical interpretation and transporting myth and lies to a country plagued by poverty and seasoned for ‘scapegoating.’

The Rt. Rev. Bishop Disani Christopher Senyonjo received his M Div in 1966 and his STM in 1967 from Union Theological Seminary, New York. Bishop Senyonjo is perhaps best known for his courageous advocacy on the part of LGBTQ persons in Uganda, where he spent his entire ministerial career prior to his 1998 retirement.

    I feel great if such brave people are being honoured this gives courage to other people to come out, but its still along way to go in Uganda most especial the hatred being spread by the church we need to enough him to convince other bishops to join him i believe this will bring a big change in Uganda as churchs have big followers. Let the church preach messages of peace not hate,dicrimination
