First African gay wedding was held in south-African, Duo of two south African gay tie knot today. Tshepo Cameron Modisane and Thoba Calvin Sithol wore traditional tribal costumes for the ceremony, in the town of KwaDukuza in KwaZulu-Natal,
The newly-married couple, who are both 27 and have been together for three years, made their vows in front of 200 guests.

The ceremony united traditions from both Mr Modisane’s Tswana and Mr Sithole’s Zulu ancestry, including traditional dancing and the ritual sacrifice of a cow to honour the two men’s ancestors, as well as an an exchange of gifts between the two grooms’ families.
Tshepo Modisane, now Sithol, said: I love Thoba so much, I’m very excited we’re both Mr Sithol.
There is an idea that being gay is against being African, but being gay is as African as being black, so it’s part of our culture and we are rooted in our culture. The Sithols plan to have a smaller ceremony in Johannesburg later this year.
Same-sex marriages have been legal in South Africa since 2006. It is the fifth country, the first in Africa, and the second outside Europe, to legalise it.
