Rape as a Cure

Gangs of South African men are raping lesbians in the belief it will “cure” the women’s sexual orientation. These are mostly carried out in South African townships where the homosexuality is largely taboo.

Though gay marriages are legal in South Africa, the society has treated them as “un-African”.

There are daily reports of beatings, and verbal abuse of the lesbians.
