KwaZulu-Natal LGBTQI+ community living in fear amid frequent attacks

The group feels threatened and the continuous attacks have worsened matters. The LGBTQI+ community in KwaZulu-Natal says they are still not safe. This is despite various campaigns aimed at educating communities to acknowledge that gay and lesbian people have a right to live peacefully, without being targeted and being attacked. June month marks Pride month to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. The uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States of America. The killing of at least four gay and lesbian people hogged the headlines in the province in the past two years. The provincial legislature is holding a symposium in Durban about the challenges the LGBTQI+ community is experiencing.
