As @ekapa correctly noted in his comment on my post about “Homophobia as National Sport” in South Africa, “… depressing as this is its a symptom/result of the increasingly vocal and visible African and Coloured activists who are no longer willing to hide and suffer in silence but now demand the rights and protections set out in the South African constitution.

So I am posting this excerpt from the excellent South African TV program, “The Big Debate.” Though the format encourages “conflict,” we get to see South Africans debate the relationship between sex and culture. In this clip (12 minutes long) they debate whether homosexuality is un-African. It will surprise you.
