The high priority given equal rights for homosexuals in United States Foreign Policy activities may not have gone down well with many African nations. President Barrack Obama had instructed his officials to "ensure that US diplomacy and foreign assistance promote and protect the human rights of lesbian, gay, and transgender persons" around the world. In consonance with the foregoing, legal, moral and financial support would be boosted for gay rights organizations, while emergency assistance would be sent to groups or individuals facing threats, and asylum in the US would be offered to people forced to flee anti-gay persecution in their countries.
