Watch the First African Gay Wedding

Tshepo Cameron Modisane and Thoba Calvin Sithol got married in a traditional African wedding ceremony that is being referred to as a “first” in Africa. The couple were surrounded by 200 family members and friends who wholeheartedly endorsed the wedding. The ceremony included the slaughtering of a cow (for good luck I guess); the exchanging of gifts, and the wearing of traditional ceremonial garb. The happy couple plan a “fairy tale white wedding” later this year. They hope to start a family soon, through the use of a surrogate, since gay men can’t yet give birth. Source
