Members of the LGBTQ community in Europe have come out to commend the leader of the National Unity Platform (NUP), Robert Kyagulanyi, aka Bobi Wine, for standing firm in fighting and promoting gay rights in Uganda and Africa at large.

Bobi Wine, who has been on a European tour mobilizing resources to support his political party activities, has been showered with praise from members of the LGBTQ community in Belgium and other European countries, calling him an ambassador of the LGBTQ people in Africa who has not shied away Β from fighting for sexual minorities’ rights.

Many include one David Vidal Sans, a Press and Communications Advisor at the European Union Parliament, took it to social media to commend Bobi Wine for his role in promoting homosexuality in Africa.

β€œHonored to meet Uganda’s most prominent leader, @HEBobiwine. He is not only fighting for human and LGBTI+ rights but also exposing the dictatorial reality of his country in the 2024 Oscar-nominated documentary Bobi Wine: The People’s President,” Vidal posted on X.

Bobi Wine, who was deemed homophobic and made a song condemning homosexuality, made it categorically clear that he supports the LGBTQ community after joining elective politics in 2018. In November 2023, he condemned his party MPs for supporting the Anti-Homosexuality Act (AHA), which prohibits the promotion of homosexuality in Uganda and has a death penalty for aggravated homosexuality.

While speaking to BBC in London, Bobi Wine bashed his MPs for going against his stance on LGBTQ rights and accused them of working with President Museveni to pass the AHA. It is against this backdrop that he removed Mpuuga from the Leader of Opposition (LOP) post in parliament for allegedly rallying his colleagues to support the AHA.

However, unlike in Europe and America, where he clearly declares his complete support for LGBTQ rights, Bobi Wine denies his association with homosexuals whenever he gets back to Uganda in fear of losing support from the locals who continue to detest homosexuality.

This has left him in a dilemma to choose between the money from the LGBTQ community and the political support from the locals.
