South Africa seems to be one of the only countries in Africa that are becoming more accepting of homosexuals and they have rights unlike the rest of the countries. This might be because South Africa is becoming very modern and indulging in the Western culture. There are also celebrities like the late Brenda Fassie who came out in the public eye.
I find that Afropolitans (modern Africans) are more open and accepting of people whereas the generations before are still stuck in a very stubborn mindset where it may be okay for other cultures to come out of the closets but not for Africans. This of-course makes it hard for Africans to come out and be honest about who they are. I personally have never met any homosexual Africans and I wonder if there are any people out there who are or know any African friends or family who are homosexual. I would love to here your experiences about dealing with this African view on homosexuality.
