The position of political parties on LBGTQI+ rights

The EFF seems to have the strongest position on LGBTQI+ rights.

Also explicit about its stance, COPE promises to support their constitutional rights.

The ANC says it championed the cause and rights of those who identify as LGBQTI+ by championing the sexual orientation equality clause in the Constitution.

To help us unpack this issue, we are speaking to Lethlogonolo Mokgoroane, 2018 M&G Top 200 young people who obtained his LLM from the University of California, Los Angeles.

As a Sonke Gender Justice fellow, he uses his knowledge and experience with queer, Black feminist and critical race theory to challenge a system that continues to plague the marginalised bodies of queer people and Black womxn.
