Despite the fact that same-gender marriage has been legalized in South Africa, it appears that many individuals are still confused about what it means. If you marry someone of the same gender, you are deemed abnormal in the eyes of the majority of the black community. Gay and lesbian people have been murdered in a number of cases around the country, according to reports. Society, and particularly black society, views marriage as normal when a man marries a woman rather than when a guy marries his brother or brother-in-law.
Many people have been rejected by their parents and other members of their family as a result of who they are and their decision to be gay or lesbian, respectively. Some people have tragically lost their lives as a result of the actions of the community against them because they were gay or lesbian. People of advanced age, in particular, are unable to comprehend and approve a man’s marriage to another guy. It is regarded as a curse and as being immoral.
Aldrin, a television and radio broadcaster, posted a photo of a freshly married gay couple with the message “I’m obsessed with this picture.” In a photo that has been published, two men can be seen being married to each other in the presence of their family and friends. Not all families are against their children being LGBT for the reasons stated above.
In the comments area, many people expressed their displeasure with the newlywed couple’s appearance. Some others have even gone so far as to label it a sham and a load of crap. This demonstrates that, despite the fact that South Africa has legalised same-gender marriage, members of the LGBTQ community continue to face problems and obstacles as a result of violence and homicides perpetrated by members of the community.
