Interview: ‘Zim still not a safe place for LGBTQ community’

Last year, South African celebrity Somizi Mhlongo was scheduled to travel to Zimbabwe as a guest of honour at the reopening of a top restaurant in Harare. But the trip never happened because there was strong criticism over his sexual orientation as a gay activist. While other countries accept the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) community, Zimbabwe’s Constitution does not speak of discrimination, but the LGBTQ community feels that there is a lot of discrimination against them. NewsDay digital and online reporter Evans Mathanda (ND) caught up with a Zimbabwean gay activist, Elton Bhebhe (EB), to discuss his experience as an LGBTQ person.
