Sweden: Ugandan Gay Couple Marries in Church

Written by scott on January 28th, 2013

According to Gay Star News, a gay couple who fled from Uganda married last Saturday in a church in Sweden:

Lawrence Kaala and Jimmy Sswerwadda, who claim to be the first ever Ugandan gay couple to legally marry, said their vows on Saturday (26 January). The couple married on the two-year anniversary of the murder of David Kato, one of the African country’s most famous LGBT activists.

Unfortunately, one of the men may be forced to return to Uganda:

ut the Sweden Migration Board (SMB) has given the worst possible wedding gift to the couple, forcing Kaala to return to Uganda. The deportation order has been issued, and friends of the couple are now working to get the SMB to see Kaala is in need of asylum.

We hope the SMB makes the right decision here and reverses the order.
