On March 21, 2023, National Security Council Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby declared that the Biden regime believes LGBTQ+ rights “are human rights,” and they constitute “a core part of our foreign policy.”
Kirby made this response after being questioned about Uganda’s recent passage of an anti-LGBTQ identity law and whether the United States is committed to promoting homosexual rights in Africa,
At the White House press briefing, a reporter informed Kirby about how the Ugandan parliament passed an “anti-homosexual bill” and that Ugandan officials had plans of participating at an African summit to talk about and promote the passage of similar anti-homosexuality laws in other African countries.
The reporter also asserted that Russia was potentially supporting such laws to drive a “wedge” against the US. Due to how the Biden regime “is currently engaging with Africa on other issues” the reporter asked Kirby if this is “a concern for the U.S.?”
