Charli XCX vows to never return to her homeland of Uganda, in protest of the country's anti-gay laws

Sv5occk

Charli's mother was born and raised in Uganda, and the singer had this to say about the country and its lawmakers who are now trying to push an even stricter Anti-Homosexuality Bill than the one that was rejected by Uganda's Constitutional Court in August of this year:

"I have been to Uganda when I was younger. It was amazing, but I wouldn’t go there now because I am so anti a lot of the laws that have been passed there,'

'It was really upsetting that that’s the road the government decided to go down. I’m never going back there. It’s a terrible, backwards decision."

Have any of you left your homes/homelands as a result of your LGBT identity?
