Africa gets First Sporting Event targeted at LGBT People



Africa gets First Sporting Event targeted at LGBT People | BellaNaijaThe AfroGames have become the first sporting event targeted at promoting the rights of LGBT people across Africa.

With homophobia still rampant across the continent, the AfroGames aims to help bring LGBT people across Africa together.

The games, which took place between the 8th and 10th of December, was supported by the University of KwaZulu-Natal and included games like football, track and field sports, rugby and netball.

The event took place in Durban, South Africa, and one of the organizers, Hlengiwe Buthelezi, said:

We’re using the games in uniting people for inclusivity and use them to break the stigma of homophobia because most African countries have not decriminalised homosexuality

    Romans 1 vs 22 – 27.
    May God open their darkened hearts to receive the light of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ that liberates mankind from the bondage of sin and depravity.

    Bellanaija, you guys are pathetic. Supporting gay rights as if it’s human rights. Remember it is a crime in this country and it will forever be so. The senate should have been alerted on what you and LIB are doing and ban gay content on Nigerian blogs.
