President Robert Mugabe says people like Takunda Amina are “worse than dogs and pigs” - so daily life as a gay man in Zimbabwe was never going to be easy. At 24, Amina has already been chased from his family home, forced to marry - twice - and fathered three children who ask him tough questions about sex and sexuality. He has been vilified in the national press - snapped at a gay party - and rejected as a disgrace by his parents. Not even the best spiritual healers could ‘cure’ Amina of being gay. ”I‘m a single father of three and a male sex worker,” Amina told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
