Married men sleeping with gay men

Married men sleeping with gay men
- Although in its preliminary stages, the study has already come across findings to the effect that the exclusion of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex (LGBTI) community in government development programmes as well as society as a whole resulted in marginalised men soliciting or being solicited to engage in sexual relations with ‘straight’ men who in turn fund their livelihood. In fact, a majority of the 40 respondents cited marginalisation within the economy as reasons for engaging with married men who in turn fund their flamboyant lifestyles. According to the researcher who is known and was vouched for by several organisations advocating for LGBTI rights, gay men were treated as mistresses, colloquially referred to as ‘side chicks’ or makhwapheni by married men who in turn gave them money or other expensive favours.
