A group of anti-gay members of the Ugandan Parliament is in Dallas.

The Eastern Africa Diaspora Business Council and Uganda North America Association are meeting at the Omni Hotel today until 5 p.m.

The guest of honor is Uganda’s Vice President H.E Edward Ssekandi. The delegation includes cabinet ministers and 21 members of the Ugandan Parliament.

For more than a year, the Ugandan Parliament has been considering a “kill the gays” bill condemned by both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama.

The “kill the gays” bill was promoted and sponsored by right-wing American clergy working in Uganda.
