On NPR: Gay Life In Africa Met With Complexity

NPR's Michel Martin has interviewed Neville Hoad, associate professor of English at the University of Texas-Austin and author of African Intimacies: Race, Homosexuality, and Globalization, about homosexuality and African culture.

Says Martin:
We wanted to know more about how homosexuality is viewed throughout the continent of Africa, and we learned that in most African countries, homosexuality is a crime. One notable exception is South Africa, where discrimination against gays and lesbians has been prohibited in the constitution since 1996, and same-sex marriage has been legal since 2006. To find out more, we called Neville Hoad.
