From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Britain ‘must tackle’ homophobia established in former colonies

Thursday 17th July 2014

BRITAIN should help end the homophobia it started in countries it once ruled as colonies, LGBT rights campaigners told David Cameron yesterday before the start of the Commonwealth Games.

Activists descended on Downing Street to urge the PM to speak out against the 42 commonwealth countries that criminalise homosexuality.

The Peter Tatchell Foundation said Mr Cameron should declare his support for article seven of the Commonwealth Games rules against discrimination.

Edwin Sesange was among the organisers of the African LGBTI Out and Proud Diamond Group’s protest.

He said: “Britain imposed most of the existing anti-gay laws in Commonwealth nations when it was the colonial power in the 19th century.

“Homosexuality was not illegal in these countries prior to British colonisation.

“Britain has been part of the problem. Therefore it should be part of the solution by challenging homophobia and transphobia in the Commonwealth.”
