Gateway to Africa

Johannesburg is definitely South Africa's gateway to Africa - most airlines to South Africa fly directly into Johannesburg's Oliver Tambo International Airport. A few now fly from Europe or the Americas to Cape Town and the third major city, Durban, our east-coast port city is seeing increasing traffic. This was boosted with the completion of Durban's huge King Shaka Interntional Airport in time for the 2010 world cup soccer event hosted in South Africa, an event which catapulted South Africa into the world limelight.

Also check out our Gay Directory South Africa on Facebook for everything that's hot and happening in the city and beyond.

Goodbye to a dear father

The modern father of our nation and South Africa's favourite President died at the age of 95 last night on the 5th December 2013.

Nelson Mandela will be remembered as a world Statesman who brought unity to South Africa and peace to this part of Africa and a man loved by everyone.

CNN sets out well his life history and the passage to a peaceful transition from the National Party government pre-1994 to the democratic elections and the inauguration of our first black President under the new negotiated Constitution of the Republic. The Constitution introduced a Bill of Rights and widespread new freedoms for all citizens, regardless of race or gender. We salute you dear father and thank you for your gift to us all. May you Rest in Peace.

This makes it second in a row for South Africa as Charl van den Berg (left in picture right) handed over his reign as Mr Gay World 2010 to Francois. Charl is pictured in Durban with Durban View Gay Guesthouse co-owner Dave Mc Naught.

We are so proud of both you guys holding up the flag for South Africa at such a prestigeous competition.

Pride films in Johannesburg

Not very well publicised but Ster Kinekor are halfway through their Pride Film Fest in South Africa with 2 movies left to screen in their Cinema Nouveau complexes around the country.

In Johannesburg/Pretoria there will be a screening of The Kids are Alright on the 12th November in Brooklyn (Pretoria) and in Rosebank Johannesburg on the 26th November whilst their other movie Eyes Wide Open screens only at 4 venues on the 12th (Rosebank and Cavendish) and 26th November (Brooklyn Pretoria and V&A Waterfront Cape Town).

Last year I was appalled by the lack of publicity for the few films they were showing and adverts at the Cinema for the gay film fest apologised to straight patrons for the screening on one day of the year of films to suit the gay community. Poor show Ster Kinekor.

Johannesburg Gay Pride Sat 2 Oct

It's all happening in Gay Johannesburg this weekend with South Africa's largest Pride gathering, Parade and Parties.

Check out the Events listing down the sideblog on the left and here's a pic of the Parade route from Zoo Lake to Rosebank and back. The Pride Parade and Festival celebrates it's 21st birthday on Saturday! Wow, a coming of age of Gay Rights in South Africa.






The 2010 Pride Parade, featuring a host of colourful floats and thousands of revellers, will kick off from Zoo Lake Sports Club at 10am through the streets of Rosebank. Participants should note that this is an hour earlier than in previous years – so make sure you get there on time!

Refreshment points for marchers will be provided along the route. No alcohol is permitted to be consumed in the Parade and participants are reminded to wear sunscreen and a hat or cap.

Marchers return back to Zoo Lake Sports Club at around 11.30am for the rest of the Pride Day festivities until 5pm. Revellers will be entertained by local artists and DJS as well as a guest teaser performance and appearance by British pop-star and DJ Sonique who will perform with her dancers at the Official Joburg Pride After-party later that night at the Standard Bank Arena. (Tickets for the after-party are available through Computicket).


Besides the entertainment there will also be Pride stalls - with all sorts of goodies on display and on sale - bars, food and a kiddies’ play area. LGBT organisations such as OUT will be informing the public about their work and will provide services such as free on-the-spot HIV testing.

Johannesburg and Pretoria have produced the biggest group of finalists in the Mr Gay South Africa 2010 pageant with 8 hotbodz vying for the title.


Competition will be tough however with entrants from Durban and Cape Town - the latter city having produced last year's winner Charl van den Berg who went on to snatch the Mr Gay World Title earlier this year.


In the photos are Francois Nel from Centurion (top) followed hotly by some gorgeous guys who are all deserving of the title.
