OLIVER/ONZIEMA




Former The Daily Show correspondent and temporary host John Oliver has a show that airs on Sunday nights at 10 PM (ET) on HBO called Last Week Tonight. Portions of the program are regularly updated to its YouTube channel.

Last night is why the show needs to be expanded to one hour.

John Oliver discussed on the progress that the United States has made in LGBT rights but at the same time has had elements of the religious right influence harmful policies on LGBT persons in other countries such as Uganda.

The portion of the program concluded with an interview with LGBTI activist Pepe Julian Onziema. Mr. Onziema still lives in Uganda and is trying to change hearts and minds over this discriminatory policy.


The second part of the interview aired online after the program ended and is provided below.
