  1. Did anyone actually see these guys kiss? It smacks of immigration scam

    1. WHAT! Are you for real. What do you want a porn of them enjoying full sex? Why would a kiss prove they were gay and a couple?

        Add James! to the ever-growing list of xenophobes. Borders are but imaginary lines humans have drawn on maps of the planet. A shame, really. The ultimate in tribalism.

        1. The say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. That post was not me. See my avatar

          1. Someone must have it in for you – for pretending to be you – someone did it to me recently. Pathetic.

    Well done Sweden. People like theses guys desperately need the support and protection by compassionate governments to preserve them from the horrific homophobic governments of their home countries. And I don’t think preserving couples from a noose or a bullet is able to be interpreted as an immigration scam!!!

  3. Sweden couldn’t have done anything else. This couple just HAD to be granted asylum as they would have been tortured and killed if deported back to Uganda.

    I hope the UK will also grant asylum to LGBT Ugandans that manage to escape their country, but I have a suspicion that Theresa May could be very hard-hearted over the issue. No doubt the Christian right-wing would be up in arms if the UK saved the lives of other humans that would otherwise be executed in their homeland.

    Oh and the “James!” at the top of the page is thankfully not me.

    Those anal loving morons should never ever step in our country…….

    1. And your hate-fuelled bigotry, ignorance and stupidity should never ever enter ours. If you want me to give you an explanation of how you possess all of the above qualities, I’d be happy to give it to you.

  6. These Gentlemen are really not Gay As they want you people to believe. this is a high tech level of intelligence to stay in Sweden. and many will surface. in london, europe and other developed countries. to them they ruther be known as gay than dying of poverty stinking in their countries. one would call them conmen, thieves, liers, name them. but these are well established business men who want to continue life else where otherthan their countries. just think about it you will agree with me. have they told you where in Uganda they come from? who among you people who want to believe their story knows any of their true biological siblings?????? This is another section of Actors just follow them they are innocent guys actually gready at women than men.

    1. Wow. If idiots could fly then this place would sure be a good airport today. Why is it so hard for you to get it in your brain that these men are gay and happily married. Why would they be happy to be completely cut off from their home country and receive death threats, end up marrying and then work for an LGBT charity if they weren’t really gay??? Take you idiocy elsewhere.

    2. Really, Joel? And you know this…how? Are you an agent of the government, prowling around their windows, checking to make sure that they are “plowing” each other with the proper fervor? Those odd stains on the wall under the window…you wouldn’t happen to know what those are, would you? No?… Oh, well, pardon me for questioning your “concern for national security, he said with heavy sarcasm!

    3. Joel are you are racist trash or is it that you dont you know what is happening to your bretheren in Uganda then, if they had not come from Uganda i would have probably agreed with you and said that they were economically motivated. THERE IS A DEATH SENTENCE( kill the gays bill) On ALL GAYS AND LESBIANS in that country if you dont know!
