Africans react to the #FineQueerCouples trend on Twitter.

It’s no secret that homosexuality is generally frowned upon by Africans, with South Africa being the only country on the continent where same-sex marriage is allowed. Besides Guinea-Bissau, Equatorial Guinea, Lesotho, Mozambique and Rwanda where it is legal without guaranteed protections, homosexuality is illegal in the rest of Africa. However the facts didn’t stop LGBT couples from displaying their love for eachother with the hashtag #FineQueerCouples recently.
