Issues surrounding the topic of homosexuality have sparked emotional debate all over the world. In South Africa, homosexuality is no longer a crime and the rights of homosexuals have been enshrined in the new constitution ( see politics ). Homosexuality has become a mainstay for radio and television talk shows and is addressed now more than ever in casual conversation.

This section of the Gay South Africa web site is designed to address common questions about homosexuality, and to discuss the misconceptions and stereotypes that are all too often portrayed as fact.
