First Traditional Gay Zulu Wedding Takes Place In South Africa

If you thought social change wasn't possible, maybe this video will convince you.


This moving clip shows South Africa's first traditional Zulu wedding between two gay men Tshepo Modisane and Thoba Sithole. After tying the knot, they told reporters that they can't wait to have children too. "Family is important to us and that is the number one reason why we want to have children,” explained Thoba. "We also want our children to grow up in an environment where they are loved greatly by both parents who appreciate them." he continued.

The couple is planning to have children with the help of a surrogate and I think I speak for all of us when I saw: CONGRATS BOYS!
