The question we left with was: Where were the black lesbian contestants at the Miss Gay Limpopo 2013 to create what is ‘supposed’ to be a gender balance.

  1. But my question is why is it dat are neva really any black FEMME lesbians at the Miss Gay competitions iv noticed it on many occassions in Durban where the fem members of the community feel like just bystanders and not part of a rich vibrant community at events like these because mostly the gay black men and the butch or tom black women are represented. I hope I am being fair in my question its just been my observation and how I have felt for years now.

  2. I have a question that stems from that question, why it that within the Lgbti community we find that the most represented members are black flamboyant gay men and black butch lesbian women ? If my observations serve me correct I have never seen an event that has successful included every one into it especially the pageants such as these Miss Gay and so on. Where can we then start to build a home that cares and caters for all members of it?
