Summary
All too often, sexuality in Africa is examined through the lenses of epidemic and disease, but this study celebrates human_diversity and calls for a more responsible and broadminded view of sexual practices on the continent. From dating in the Eastern Cape to living as a lesbian, bisexual, or gay person in Cape Town, from gender violence in Nigeria to female circumcision in Kenya, the discussion weaves threads from many traditions and provides a colorful and intricate examination of human sexuality in contemporary Africa
