Intersesting link on the subject. I know some other sources, but this gave a very complete overview with references. Many like to think that "gay" & "lesbian" was invented by the Europeans, though it was know to exist everywhere in the world... Africa was one place. This is a good jumpstart for those seeking to realise history without having to hear a biased, judgemental opinion by any indoctrinated person full of hate and self-righteousness. This anthropological viewpoint favours objectivity. http://semgai.free.fr/doc_et_pdf/africa_A4.pdf Enjoy! By the way, this is purely for those interested in a non-religious understanding of african civilisations. It is not meant to "convince" anyone of anything. We should not have to pick our brains to defend what is fact against those that choose to live oblivious and lost in religious fanaticism. Furthermore, I am not from the school of thought that SOME ONE or SOME RELIGION has to dictate what my humanity already understands.
