Zulu or isiZulu, is the language of the Zulu people, belonging to the Niger-Congo family language. With about 9 million speakers, the vast majority in South Africa is one of the 11 official languages of this country.
South Africa, after Apartheid and over the years, has become one of the main countries where LGBT rights are protected, decriminalizing homosexuality, allowing equal marriage, civil unions, adoption and legislating against the employment discrimination, etc. This has meant that especially in large cities such as Cape Town and Durban the LGBT community is socially accepted, however in rural areas, the picture is different since gay people are still assaulted and lesbians suffer “corrective violations”. The first LGBT pride was held in Johannesburg in 1990 and is now celebrated in several cities.
