The Uganda Media Council has vowed not to allow the screening of a Dutch film, The Dinner Club, after accusing it of “glorifying homosexuality”.

The banned movie is a Dutch film, The Dinner Club, the Embassy of The Netherlands in Kampala revealed.

The country’s censorship board led by Mr Paul Ekochu described the European film as women forming a “Dinner Club which is, in reality, a sort of brothel”, and said the film included scenes of “gay men sauntering away drunk”.

It said “while glorifying homosexuality two women say marriage (presumably to men) is hard work! This is against Ugandan values.”

The council also objected to one man calling another a “hot chick”.

The film was released in 2010 and was due to be shown in a European film festival in Uganda at three different venues: Goethe-Zentrum Kampala, Kamwokya sports ground (11th May) and Makerere University main sports ground (15th & 18th May).
