SA Marriage Gabfest


Public hearings began today in South Africa as the country continues to mull over exactly how they’ll be dealing with gay marriage. LGBT organizations and politicians gathered in White City in the township of Soweto (yeah, we think it’s a bit tacky, too) to debate whether the proposed Civil Union Act creates a separate – and decidedly unconstitutional – class for gays of the marrying type. Obviously, gay activists maintain the Act’s inequality, while the conservative folk insist on securing the sanctity of marriage.

The hearings were interrupted temporarily as all the people who lost their lives fighting apartheid rolled in their graves.
