Digital Participation- music and African homosexuality

The following link is to an article about Nakhane Toure’ who is an African singer who is also homosexual. He’s unique because his last album got overwhelmingly positive feedback, even though he is opening homosexual. Additionally, he comes from an important family, with his uncle as the current chief of their chiefdom. Although he is from South Africa where the society and laws are a bit more lenient on those who identify as queer, I think this article provides hope that spheres such as music can bridge the divide.  (I also think Jude Dibia would find this to be pretty cool. )
