The WYATT! podcast does a deep dive into those timely and critical issues that impact Gay/SGL (Same-Gender-Loving) men with a diverse set of LGBTQ+ movers, shakers, and change agents. WYATT! is absorbing, informative, provocative–and sprinkled with sly, spicy (and sometimes a wee bit) scandalous humor! The fast-growing podcast airs on both YouTube and Spotify.

On Saturday, April 27, we travel to Uganda for an investigative edition of WYATT! Last year, that African nation passed the Anti-Homosexuality Act of 2023, its most inhumane and egregious anti-LGBTQ+ law to date. This edict restricts freedom of speech on the civil rights of LGBTQ+ individuals and introduces harsher penalties for certain types of homosexual acts. The legislation prescribes life imprisonment for sex between two people of the same biological sex and the death penalty for “aggravated homosexuality.”

Our special guest is humanitarian and activist Kiggundu Ronald Reagan, who is challenging and opposing this heinous and potentially life-threatening law. Mr. Reagan is the co-founder and executive director of Liberty for Marginalized Persons Uganda, an organization committed to preserving the rights and liberties of LGBTQ+ Ugandans. 

He graciously agreed to an exclusive interview a week or so earlier; however, that had to be rescheduled. The activist had to move to a safer location because he received threats from neighbors due to his position on the Anti-Homosexuality Act.  

We open the episode with Kiggundu giving us a complete breakdown of the recent law, including the definition of “aggravated homosexuality.”  The advocate also notes that the new ban stipulates capital punishment for “serial offenders of homosexuality” and that it decrees a 20-year sentence for “promoting” homosexuality. Next, he explains precisely how this highly oppressive legislation is impacting LGBTQ+ Ugandans—including its myriad consequences and ramifications.

There’s been widespread condemnation from the West. Right after the legislation was enacted, Joe Biden, the President of the United States, called the move “a tragic violation” of human rights and said that Washington would evaluate the implications of the law “on all aspects of U.S. engagement with Uganda.” 

The president further stated, “We are considering additional steps, including the application of sanctions and restriction of entry into the United States against anyone involved in serious human rights abuses or corruption.” I then asked Kiggundu what actions he wants the West to take to support his fellow LGBTQ+ compatriots in their fight against the Anti-Homosexuality Act of 2023.

On the other side of the coin, white evangelical Christians in the U.S. are exporting an anti-gay movement and ideology that are polarizing African countries and endangering LGBTQ+ people.  Kiggundu and I dissect this. 

Finally, we explore his organization, Liberty for Marginalized Persons Uganda: its mission, obstacles, and success stories thus far.  Kiggundu goes into detail about what he hopes to accomplish in the immediate future. 

The activist and humanitarian makes a compelling case as to why his organization is so necessary in the ongoing battle against the Anti-Homosexuality Act of 2023—and why the organization must receive our support.
