John Oliver Talks Uganda's Harsh Anti-Gay Laws with LGBT Activist Pepe Julian Onziema

Here's a segment from last night's Last Week Tonight, in which John Oliver explores the recent rise of persecution against homosexuals in Uganda and how the country's extreme homophobic attitude can be easily traced to a few idiots back here in the states. Be sure to watch the end of the clip, in which Oliver interviews Ugandan LGBT activist Pepe Julian Onziema about working for equality where homosexuality is illegal and why the harsh laws would've never been enacted without interference from the US. Click through for Oliver's extended interview with Onziema.
