South African gay activists are all riled up over the recent murder of Johannesburg-based drag queen Desmond Dube: “In response to the killing, the 07-07-07 End Hate Crimes campaign will host a Community Speak Out event on 2 July at the Yeoville Recreational Centre, encouraging dialogue and discussion on hate crime awareness. LGBT activists are concerned at the increasing levels of homophobic attacks throughout the country, usually targeting black lesbians, and intend to monitor the police response to Dube’s murder.” [Mamba]
