how is it being gay in South Africa? What is it like for LGBT people in South Africa?
It’s different, like it is in most countries, in the urban vs rural areas.
But in general, not too bad. Same sex marriage, adoption is legal. People can be out with no real fuss in their day to day lives. Most cities have gay clubs, bars, LGBTQ centres, events, etc.
There’s a lot of bigotry and backward-ness around, but its usually not aggressive or in your face. Mostly related to lack of exposure and education. There is hate crimes though, that’s for sure.
Most urban/educated folk don’t have an issue with LGBTQ people.
