Celebrating marriage equality as a South African is an exercise in white privilege #morethanmarriage

Apart from the global inequalities in trans vs. gay rights, as a South African I refuse to celebrate my privilege and gloss over the reality of my black brothers, sisters and siblings. I will not superimpose the gay flag over my profile pic until my right to marry coincides with their right not to be discriminated against, beaten, tortured, raped and killed. #morethanmarriage
