Here is a one of the clearest pictures I have seen of Kabaka Mwanga (est 1868-1897), Uganda’s best known gay king.
He was certainly a handsome man.
Many royalists simply refuse to accept the facts surrounding Mwanga’s homosexuality but there is enough documented evidence that points to it. Religion is touted as the reason he killed the 21 Uganda Martyrs and that is part of the truth.
The other part, which is often omitted, is that Mwanga became irritated that the pretty boys he used to have his sexual ways with at will started rejecting his advances, after being fed on Bible stories, on the grounds that Jesus was now their only king and master.. He decided to kill them off, no doubt to show them that their so-called savior really couldn’t save them from his wrathful intentions. And Jesus actually didn’t.
Not that it matters too much now. History cannot really be re-written and it is enough at this point to revel in the man’s obvious good looks.
