Africa: History

While Africans argued that homosexuality was a western import, they in turn used a western religion as the basis for their argument. When I have challenged people who are anti-gay, many have said that it is not our culture. However, when you probe further, they argue that homosexuality is not in the Bible. But the Bible is not our historical culture. This shows there is real confusion about Africa’s past...

Badly un-argued piece in Guardian online.

You can't blame homophobia in Africa on a colonialism that died out more than a generation ago, or a couple of American evangelists.

The book it cites, Boy-Wives And Female Husbands, is available to read here.
