Nigel Gordon Posted June 15, 2015 Report Share Posted June 15, 2015 An interesting report has just come up on the SciDev network about homosexuality in Africa, the connected article is well worth reading. You can find it here: http://www.scidev.net/global/governance/news/ASSAf-homosexuality-african-life-report.html?utm_medium=email&utm_source=SciDevNewsletter&utm_campaign=international%20SciDev.Net%20update%3A%2015%20June%202015 I am always amazed by people who tell me that there is no history of homosexuality in Africa. They mostly seem to be people who are part of the African diaspora, especially Jamaicans and African Americans. Anybody who has spent any time studying African history will have come across the evidence for homosexual activity within the Zulu Impi, the courts of the Kings of Benin not to mention the reports on the practices of the Central African tribes. Homosexuality was always a major part of African life and culture, it is Western Churches that have driven it underground, especially American Baptist Missionaries. Quote Link to comment
