Constitution prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. In December 2006, South Africa became the fifth country
in the world and the first in Africa to legalise same-sex marriage (Calitz, 2009). In the light of this legal equality, gay men and
women have become more visible in South Africa and have made their voices heard in the public sphere (Graziano, 2004 a, b).
Terms like LGBTI, coming out and gay slowly became absorbed into everyday talk and used interchangeably with words such
as sexual orientation and acceptance of differences.
