Uganda’s gay rights community asks for meeting with Pope


Uganda’s gay rights community says they are hoping for a one-on-one meeting with the Pope when he visits their country from November 27-29.
While Francis has not changed Catholic dogma on homosexuality and has reaffirmed the church’s opposition to same-sex marriage, his more inclusive approach has cheered many gay Catholics while annoying conservatives.

Ugandan gay rights activist Frank Mugisha, an official of Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG), said his group wrote a letter to the Vatican requesting private audience with the pontiff during his visit. He said the letter was received but no response was sent back.
