 Another Homophobic Nation in Homophobic Africa, Namibia, Rules Against Gay Marriage

It’s no secret that LGBTQ people have a rough time living in backward godawful places like Namibia…or other parts of Africa. I once read somewhere that all this homophobia is spread by Christians from the US who are there on missions in Africa to convert people. It was a long time ago and I’m not sure that’s true. But I do know that LGBTQ people in these countries are treated as if they are second-class citizens. 

In this particular case, the judge actually agreed with the gay couple about marriage, but she couldn’t do anything because Namibia has a “prohibition” on same-sex relations. As I said, these places are very backward and inhibited. 

“The current legal position has turned me, and many others in my position, into second-class citizens, forced to choose between our country and our family,” he said in a statement.

Here’s more. It goes into much more detail about how all this affected two same-sex couples. Both couples were already married in other places but they moved to Namibia where their marriages aren’t recognized. 

The trouble is that when you’re gay you really ARE a second-class citizen wherever you go…unless of course, it’s a gay mecca. It even happens in the US, but it’s just more passive-aggressive. The entire world is so steeped in straight privilege it might take centuries for us to gain full equality.
