A letter to Homophobes Living in South Africa

Screen Shot 2013-10-07 at 2.48.39 PMAn open letter to Persecutors of Gays and LGBTI, Rapists, ‘Corrective’ Rapists,  Bullies, Hon. Holomisa, Ambassador Qwelane, Christian Evangelicals and those of you who know who you are – I address you as one in a short simple letter as follows:

Dear Homophobes of South Africa,

Please heed this simple yet imperative quote: “Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another and suffer the indignity of being the skunk of the world.” by former South African President and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Nelson Mandela.

Enkosi  (thank you / dankie / Siyabonga / Ke a leboha / Ke a leboga/ etc. ) for taking note.

May your conscience hear this loud and clear!


Melanie Nathan.
Just Another Human Being
