South African Horror

It appears that another South African lesbian has been raped and murdered.

A black lesbian in that country is about as safe as a transgender woman in this country.

The South African Web site Queerlife said 24-year-old Noxolo Nogwaza was found dead in an alley in Kwa-Thema township on Easter Sunday. A member of the local LGBT group, her "face was so badly beaten that she was unrecognizable. Her body had been stabbed all over with glass shards and an empty bottle and used condom were also reportedly found in her genitals."

Not exactly your usual Easter celebration.
